Preferred Options Paper (POP) consultation report
The Preferred Options Paper (POP) was published on 26 January 2017 and was open for consultation until 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 an opportunity for the public and other key stakeholders to shape the future plan.
All papers that went out for consultation can be viewed on the POP consultation page.
The consultation report
We carefully considered all consultation responses and have presented these in the POP Public Consultation Report.
The report provides a summary of the representations received relating to the vision and strategic aims as well as highlighting the responses to the preferred options.
The Sustainability Appraisal (incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment) Interim Report (SA) and Equality Impact Assessment (EQIA) also went out for consultation during the same time and responses are all available to view in this report.
The completion of the POP Public Consultation Report marks an important milestone in the Local Development Plan (LDP) preparation.
The POP representations will help us prepare for the next stage, the draft Plan Strategy, which will go out for consultation early 2018.
