Ribble Valley Borough Council

Ribble Valley Core Strategy Publication Version (Regulation 19) Consultation Draft

Consultation May-June 2012

In May- June 2012, Ribble Valley Borough Council moved to final stages of producing its Core Strategy 2008-28 and residents were invited to have their say between 4th May and the 15th June.

The strategy will guide development in the borough until 2028, including how many new houses the borough needs and where they might be built.

Building on widespread consultation undertaken in the borough in recent years, it also includes 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 decided on its "preferred option," which - along with accompanying reports - was subject to a six-week consultation.

Residents were invited to comment on whether the strategy had been prepared in accordance with legal and procedural requirements, and whether it is "sound."

Available to download were copies of the strategy, accompanying documents, supporting documents and response form.

Although residents may have already commented on the core strategy, it is representations submitted to this consultation that will be presented to the Government's Planning Inspectorate.

A smaller file size version of the Core Strategy (Reg 19) version without photos (3.41MB) was available. (This version has full page photographs removed resulting in blank pages. The text remains the same as the full version.)

The consultation ended on Friday, June 15, and it is the final 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 hold a public examination, with a view to the strategy's formal adoption by the end of 2012.
