Sites and Settlements Consultation Summary

South Kesteven District Council is preparing a new Local Plan, which will cover the whole district for the period 2011-2036.

The Local Plan will set out the strategy for delivering sustainable development including the vision, objectives and spatial strategy. It will also establish development requirements including the amount of housing and employment land needed, and allocate specific development sites to meet need.

The second stage of informal consultation on the new Local Plan focused on 'sites and settlements'. The consultation ended on Friday 5 August 2016.
