Residents Invited to Core Strategy Sustainability Open Day
Published Thursday 1st September 11
Residents in Ribble Valley are invited to an open day outlining the environmental, social and economic impact of eight development options contained in Ribble Valley Borough Council’s Core Strategy.
The strategy is part of the council's Local Development Framework setting out a set of objectives that will guide development in the borough over the next 15 years and recently the subject of public consultation.
It contains information 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.
The potential environmental, social and economic impact of the eight options contained in the strategy are currently being appraised and the general public are invited find out more.
The event, on Thursday, September 8, from 10am to 6.30pm, will be attended by representatives of the council's forward planning team and Hyder Consulting, who are undertaking the appraisal.
Colin Hirst, Ribble Valley Borough Council's head of regeneration and housing, said: "The open day will outline the sustainability appraisal process and may be particularly interesting to residents who have already shown an interest in the Core Strategy."
The results of the appraisal are expected to be published as part of the Core Strategy next year.
Residents are advised that it is not the purpose of the open day to discuss specific planning applications.
The open day will be held in the Ribble Valley Borough Council Chamber in Church Street, Clitheroe, and further details are available from
Ribble Valley Borough Council on 01200 425111.
