Use this form to comment in the consultation on the Local Plan 'Publication draft', which ends at midnight on Wednesday 4 April 2018. The purpose of this consultation is for you to say whether you think the plan is 'legally compliant' and ‘sound’; these terms are explained as you go through this form, but you should read the guidance notes carefully before you begin.

You can choose to comment on:

  • the Local Plan
  • the Policies Maps
  • the Sustainability Appraisal/Strategic Environment Assessment

Your comments may also refer to the justification and evidence in the supporting technical papers for the Local Plan Publication draft.

Using this form means your comments are provided in a way that suits the inspector at the Public Examination. It also allows you to register your interest in speaking at the examination.

Please be aware that each page of this form will 'time out' after 10 minutes. We strongly recommend that you compose your feedback before starting this form. You can then 'paste' your text into the pages of this form when you're ready. It is not possible to save partially completed forms, nor to retrieve lost feedback after the time out period is reached.
