Facilitating economic growth is a key priority for the Borough Council and the first part of our Local Plan was adopted in 2014 identifying a need to deliver around 13,150 new homes during the plan period (up to 2028).  We are nearing adoption of Part 2 of the Local Plan which will unlock further housing sites, many of which are currently in the Green Belt.  In addition, the Borough Council is promoting development of employment land alongside the delivery of housing.
