SKDC - Issues and Options Webpage

The following webpage sets out the context and consultation information regarding the SKDC Local Plan Review (2041) Issues and Options Document.

Context 


The Issues and Options consultation is the first opportunity for the local community to become involved in the preparation of the Local Plan Review, which sets out the scope of the key policies and proposals to be considered within the review. Reviewing the plan now can help ensure that it remains up to date and that South Kesteven will continue to grow sustainably, meeting the needs of its residents and businesses whilst protecting what is special about the area.  At this stage, the Issues and Options consultation is not a statement of the Council's proposed planning policies but a statement of intention as to what planning policies may need to be reviewed and updated. The Issues and Options paper asks a series of questions which will help the Council determine the scope and content of the Local Plan review.
