Ribble Valley core strategy available for comment
11:31am Wednesday 21st August 2013 in News
A PUBLIC consultation into Ribble Valley Borough Council’s proposed core strategy has entered its second week.
The strategy sets out development in the borough until 2028, including how many new houses the area needs and where they might be built.
It was submitted to the Government for examination in September 2012, but was rejected following concerns over the evidence submitted.
The revised evidence has now been made available for public comment.
Documents available for consultation relate to leisure, retail, employment, housing requirements and accommodation for the travelling community, as well as the strategy's statement of community involvement.
Ribble Valley Borough Council’s head of regeneration and housing, Colin Hirst, said: "Residents may have already made comments at previous stages of the Core Strategy process and these comments have informed the development of the strategy so far.
"Any new comments on the updated evidence or proposed changes will also be submitted to the Government’s Planning Inspectorate.”
For more information on the core strategy or how to comment call 01200 425111.
