Character study consultation

The Council is carrying out a study of the borough to identify its growth patterns and what makes each of its areas distinctive. This character study will feed into the Local Plan and inform future growth and developments. The final study will make recommendations on the most appropriate forms of development for an area.

You can help shape the future of the borough by telling us what gives your neighbourhood its unique identity and how new development can be best integrated to strengthen the existing character.

The Council is consulting on the character study for six weeks, from 17 May to 11:59PM on 27 June 2021.

The best way to explore the study and have your say is through this virtual consultation room
