Local Plan Review: site allocations consultation meeting in Ludlow on 14 January 2019

Related topics: Community / My area / Partner organisations / Planning

Shropshire Council’s planning policy team has launched the ‘Preferred Sites’ consultation until Thursday 31 January 2019.  

During this time, there will be a number of public meetings throughout the county. These meetings are open to all and will explain the Local Plan process and the local development proposals, and they provide the opportunity to highlight issues, specific concerns or to suggest alternatives to the preferred approach set out in the consultation document. 

Please come along and have your say on how your community is shaped for the future. 

The Ludlow meeting will be held on Monday 14 January 2019 at the Elim Church Hall, Lower Galdeford, Ludlow, SY8 1RT from 6pm–8pm. 

The Preferred Sites consultation document outlines a housing policy direction to improve the delivery of local housing needs and establishes development guidelines and development boundaries for Shrewsbury, the principal and key centres including Ludlow, and each proposed Community Hub including Burford and Clee Hill. It sets out the preferred sites to deliver the preferred scale and distribution of housing and employment growth during the period 2016 to 2036. 

The Ludlow presentation will be an opportunity for residents to learn more about the proposals from Shropshire Council planning policy officers. Local residents are encouraged to come along to the meeting and to put their views forward regarding the proposed housing and employment sites, any issues which concern them or to suggest alternative sites to the planning policy officers.
