Preferred Options Paper (POP)

The Preferred Options Paper (POP) was published on 26 January 2017 and was open for consultation until 5pm on Thursday 20 April 2017. 

The POP outlined: 

  • the vision, objectives and key planning issues affecting the city
  • possible options on how to deliver new development and planned growth
  • what our preferred options are and the rationale for that preference

The POP was a key opportunity for the public and other stakeholders to shape the future plan. 

The main documents published alongside the Topic papers that provided the evidence base are listed below:
