Local Plan Representations


The building blocks of site allocations and policies in local plans are formed from the earliest consultation stages of emerging local plans. Broad principles on settlement strategies, criteria used for site assessments, estimates of need etc., are all formulated based on local planning strategy and choice. These lead to firm proposals for site allocations. We can make sure that representations are made at the right time and on the right things to improve the potential for local influence over local plan policies and allocations. These need to be maintained and repeated throughout the process of emerging local plans. Where possible, local evidence can support representations to strengthen them. We can provide support on when and how to make representations and support the preparation of effective submissions.
