Cotswold District Council give update on controversial Local Plan which could see 2,500 homes built in Chesterton
THE controversial plan to build thousands of homes across the Cotswolds including 2,500 homes in Chesterton generated almost 2,000 responses during the consultation period.
Cotswold District Council will now sift through the comments before moving on to the next stage of the Preferred Development Strategy.
A spokesman for CDC said: “We are now reviewing those comments and will take them into account before we embark on community engagements with town and parish councils which have been earmarked for development.”
The engagement exercises, coupled with the consultation responses, will feed into developing a draft version of the Local Plan.
This version of the plan will include a development strategy, site allocations and development management policies.
Once a draft plan is in place, a further period of public consultation will run.
It is expected that this process will take place next summer.
A spokesman for CDC said: “A further round of public consultation will follow later in the year and we are aiming to submit the local plan for independent examination and approval in 2015.”
