The District Council is in the process of reviewing the Bromsgrove District Plan. The purpose of this consultation is to provide an update on the key Strategic Issues which will help guide the Bromsgrove District Plan (BDP) Review and outline the next steps towards developing a preferred spatial strategy and accompanying policies.
The District Council are seeking views on a number of considerations which will guide the direction of travel for strategic issues which could appear in the Preferred Option version of the BDP Review, providing the next ‘step’ in the plan making process.
Alongside the Bromsgrove Plan Review Update, the Council is launching a ‘Call for Sites’ exercise, where they are inviting landowners, their agents and the public to submit sites to us which they feel have development potential. To guide this process, the Council have produced a Call for Sites form and table of Identified Considerations. These Considerations provide guidance to developers and landowners on some of the factors and constraints we will be using when assessing the submitted sites.
Bromsgrove District Council has completed a Green Belt Purposes Part One Assessment, which is a strategic assessment of the Bromsgrove Green Belt against the Green Belt Purposes. This document is the first stage in a wider process of Green Belt and site allocation work. This document does not, and is not intended to justify the release of land from the Green Belt and it does not consider the development potential of land. It is purely intended to establish a baseline of how the Green Belt currently performs against the purposes of the Green Belt and is a starting point for more detailed site assessment and Green Belt assessment work to follow.
Information on the Bromsgrove Plan Review Update and the Call for Sites Consultation can be found by visiting the District Council’s website; www.bromsgrove.gov.uk/districtplan. The consultation will run for 6 weeks from 30th September until 11th November 2019.
