Wyre Forest Local Plan Review Summer 2017

The new Local Plan will shape the future of Wyre Forest District up to 2034.

It will guide key issues like:

  • New Housing – where will it go? How many homes? Will it include affordable housing?
  • Provision for new employment – how much is needed and where should it go? 
  • What supporting infrastructure and services (e.g.transport, schools, health) will be needed?
  • In the face of new development how will the natural environment be protected?

It is important we have a Local Plan so we can make sure the right development happens in the right places. If we don't review and adopt an up-to-date Local Plan, development will still happen in our district, but decisions will be taken based on the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) - without local people having a say on setting local policies. 

This is the second stage of the Local Plan Review. It takes into account the Issues and Options consultation from late 2015 along with other studies we have carried out.

Consultation is now closed.

A summary of all responses received will be publically available later this year.

The consultation accords with the Town and Country (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012, as set out in the Statement of Community Involvement
