Draft Local Plan Update
The Parish Council have today received notification that the draft Local Plan will not be published until March 2019 (instead of December 2018)
Here are the details we have received via email:-
Warrington Borough Council is continuing to work on the delivery of its draft Local Plan, which will set out the proposed approach to meeting the Borough’s future need for homes, jobs and supporting infrastructure.
Within the last 2 weeks the Government has proposed further changes to the formula that will establish the minimum number of homes that Warrington will need to plan for. The Government is consulting on these changes until Friday 7 December 2018.
It is important that the Council has clarity over the changes to the national planning rules in order to understand what this means for Warrington. The Council has therefore decided that it has no option but to delay the publication of its draft Local Plan.
It is now anticipated that the draft Local Plan will be published in March 2019, prior to a further round of public consultation.
