Core Strategy Moves To Final Stages
Published Monday 26th March 12
Ribble Valley Borough Council is moving into the final stages of producing its Core Strategy 2008-28.
Building on widespread consultation undertaken in the borough in recent years, it will also include sections on affordable housing, commerce, employment, the environment and transport.
On Wednesday, April 4, a special meeting of Ribble Valley Borough Council's planning committee will decide on its "preferred option," or where future houses might be built.
This option will be subject to a six-week consultation, before the council's planning committee makes a final decision on Thursday, June 21.
The matter will then be referred to a meeting of the full council on Tuesday July 10, or Tuesday, July 17, before being referred to the Planning Inspectorate.
The inspectorate will then hold a public examination of the Core Strategy, with a view to its formal adoption by the end of 2012.
The meetings will take place in the Ribble Valley Borough Council Chamber in Church Walk, Clitheroe, starting at 6.30pm, and members of the public are welcome to attend. As the dates of the meetings are provisional, members of the public are advised to check with the council on 01200 425111 before attending.
