Last few days to have your say on Local Plan draft



The opportunity to submit comments on East Cambridgeshire District Council’s further draft of its Local Plan will close on Wednesday 22nd February.


The Further Draft Local Plan, which is the second round of consultation in the three-stage process, has been open for feedback since 12th January.  The draft has been prepared following a review of the 2015 Local Plan and comments received during the initial consultation of Preliminary Draft Local Plan in February 2016. Unlike the Preliminary Draft, the Further Draft also sets out a series of maps with the Council’s preferred housing and employment allocations to meet the plan’s growth targets.


Councillor Coralie Green, Service Delivery Champion for Strategic Planning at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “I encourage residents to feedback their thoughts on the Local Plan, the final version of which will shape the district over the next few years. As with the initial stage of the consultation, the Council will consider the wishes of residents and, where possible, reflect these into the final draft.”


The Further Draft Local Plan can be viewed on the East Cambridgeshire District Council website, within reception at the Council’s offices in Ely and at local libraries in the district.


The online portal for this consultation is live and is one of the ways you can have you say on the plan. The Council will also accept feedback from residents by letter or email. The third and final consultation is due to take place later this year.
