Development plans and policies

How to get involved

We want to involve as many local people and organisations as possible in the preparation of the next Local Development Plan (MLDP2).

Ways to find out what's happening and how to share your views will include face-to-face drop-in events and online surveys.

To join our mailing list and be kept up to date with progress please email us:
