Ribble Valley Borough Council

Planning Policy Consultation

Previous Planning Policy Consultations

Publication Version Core Strategy - Regulation 19

In spring 2012, consultation took place on the Publication Version (Regulation 19) of the Core Strategy. The Core strategy will guide development in the borough until 2028, including how many new houses the borough are needed and where they might be built.  The consultation ran from 4th May 2012 and closed on 15 June 2012.

For more information about this consultation please see Ribble Valley Core Strategy Publication Version (Regulation 19) Consultation Draft.

Housing Numbers Review

In winter 2011, a consultation took place which looked at the numbers of houses that need to be built in the borough.  Changes in guidance have meant that this should now be determined at a local level rather than a regional level.  The consultation began at the end of November and ended on the 16th December 2011.  Further information on this consultation at Housing Numbers Review.

Alternative Options Consultation - Regulation 18 (old Regulation 25)

In Summer 2011, a second round of consultation took place on the draft Core Strategy (Regulation 25- now known as regulation 18).  This was a consultation on Alternative Options for the Core Strategy along with other key LDF and evidence base documents.  Ribble Valley Borough Council's Local Development Framework sets out a set of objectives that will guide development in the borough over the next 15 years.  It contains documents on a wide variety of issues, such as where new development might take place, affordable housing, housing for the elderly, employment, the economy and the environment.

Ribble Valley Borough Council aims to take the opinions of as many local people as possible into account, before finalising the Local Development Framework, so invited residents and visitors to the area to make their views known.  The consultation began on 29th June and closed on the 12th August 2011.

Each of the following documents were subject to consultation at this time.  For more information on all of these consultation documents Please click on the links below:

During the consultation, comments could be sent to us on all these documents by emailing response@ribblevalley.gov.uk or by sending a letter to Forward Planning, Ribble Valley Borough Council, Council Offices, Church Walk, Clitheroe, Lancashire, BB7 2RA.

All five of the consultation documents were available to view in hard copy at level D Reception, Council Offices on Church Walk in Clitheroe from 9.00 am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday and at all of the libraries in the Borough and at the Station Buildings in Longridge.

An open day drop in session was held on Wednesday 27th July in the civic suite on Church Street from 10.00am - 7:30pm where residents could meet with planners and discuss the documents.

Draft Core Strategy Regulation 18 (old Regulation 25)

In August 2010, consultation took place on the draft Core Strategy (regulation 25, now known as Reg 18).  The consultation report incorporated findings of the Issues and Options consutlation undertaken in late 2007 as well as presenting the strategic development options for consultation.  The consultation began on the 25th August 2010 and closed on the 20th October 2010.
