The Call for Sites was an important early step in the Review of the MBC Local Plan which was open between March and May 2019. The purpose of the Call for Sites is to establish what land is potentially available in the Borough. The land that was submitted will form an important part of the evidence base that underpins the spatial pattern of development included in the Local Plan.
These sites have been put forward by landowners and/or prospective developers to the council as part of its local plan review process. At the point of release (4 November 2019) no decisions have been taken on these sites. Not all sites will be needed for the local plan review and many will be deemed unsuitable.
The Council is currently assessing all of the sites received for their suitability for inclusion in the Local Plan Review. In the meantime, we have made all of the responses received available on our Google Drive.
We advise that you first look at the Borough map to find the site(s) that are of interest to you, then use the reference number to view the information submitted
We requested information about sites which might be suitable for the following:
An Information Pack was prepared for those wishing to make a submission:
You can find the Call for Sites form here.
The call for sites has now closed and we are assessing the sites for inclusion within a consultation draft of the Local Plan. Sites submitted to the council after 1st March 2020 will not be included in the Preferred Options consultation document. The next opportunity to submit a new/alternative site, or comment upon sites will be during the next public consultation in late 2020. For further information please see the Local Development Scheme. Please contact:
Submitting a site through the Call for Sites doesn't mean we'll include it in our Local Plan Review or grant planning permission on it in the future. It will give us a starting list of sites to consider.
