Drop in sessions for Core Strategy
Published Wednesday 16th May 12
A series of drop-in sessions have been arranged for Ribble Valley residents interested in having their say on the borough’s core strategy.
Ribble Valley Borough Council is in the final stages of producing its Core Strategy 2008-28, which will set out future development in the borough.
The strategy will guide development until 2028, including how many new houses the borough needs and where they might be built.
Building on widespread consultation undertaken in recent years, it also includes sections on affordable housing, commerce, employment, the environment and transport.
A series of drop-in sessions have been arranged for residents interested in taking part in the consultation.
The sessions are:
- Tuesday 22 May, 1.00 - 7.00pm, Ribble Valley Borough Council Chamber, Church Street, Clitheroe
- Monday 28 May, 10.00am - 6.30pm, Station Buildings, Berry Lane, Longridge
- Thursday 31 May, 1.00 - 7.00pm, Ribble Valley Borough Council Chamber
- Thursday 7 June, 1.00 - 6.00pm, Slaidburn Village Hall.
The strategy will be submitted to a meeting of Ribble Valley Borough Council on Tuesday, July 17, before being referred to the Planning Inspectorate.
The inspectorate will then hold a public examination of the strategy, with a view to its formal adoption by the end of 2012.
The strategy, guidance notes and comment forms are available at Ribble Valley Core Strategy Publication Version (Reg 19) Consultation Draft, at the Ribble Valley Borough Council Offices in Church Walk, Clitheroe; the Station Buildings in Berry Lane, Longridge, local libraries. The closing date for comments is 5.00pm on Friday 15 June.
