Call for Sites

The council recently undertook a Call for Sites consultation which closed on Wednesday 3 July 2019. This consultation asked for developers, landowners or other interested parties to let us know about sites that could be suitable for residential, employment or other development.

Whilst the formal 'Call for Sites' consultation has now closed, the council welcomes all site submissions and details of all sites submitted will be placed on file for a future review of the SHELAA. The submission form and corresponding guidance note remains available by clicking on the link below.
