Draft Local Plan Review Consultation Opens

Draft Local Plan Review Consultation Opens
Local residents and businesses are being asked to comment on Solihull’s Draft Local Plan, when a consultation begins on Monday 5 December.

This Draft Local Plan will eventually replace the current Local Plan (December 2013), which the Council decided to review following the legal challenge to the housing requirement in the current Plan.

The Local Plan Review will also take into account the housing shortfall across the wider housing market area and aim to maximise the potential economic and social benefits for Solihull of the forthcoming HS2 Interchange Station.

The consultation will last for eight weeks, closing on 30 January 2017.

The outline programme for the review is below:

1. Draft Local Plan – consultation 5 December 2016 – 30 January 2017
2. Publication of Submission Draft (in light of comments from the present consultation) for further consultation – Spring 2017
3. Local Plan submission to Secretary of State – Summer 2017, which will then trigger an official Examination in Public (Winter 2017)

People will be able to discuss the plan in person with Council officers working on the Review at the following libraries, between 11am and 3pm:

The Core – Friday 9 December
Chelmsley Wood – Saturday 10 December
Dickens Heath – Saturday 17 December (closed 1pm – 2pm)
Balsall Common – Saturday 7 January
Knowle – Saturday 14 January

The Draft Local Plan Review can be viewed at http://www.solihull.gov.uk/lpr from Monday 5 December
