Housing and Economic Development DPD (HED DPD)
Following the adoption of the Core Strategy in December 2014 the Council has prepared a Housing and Economic Development Development Plan Document (HED DPD). This plan sets out more detailed policy coverage for matters relating to housing and economy to fully implement the policies of the Core Strategy. The HED DPD is accompanied by a Proposals Map which shows on an Ordnance Survey base the extent of allocations and designations arising from the adopted Core Strategy and the HED DPD. The adopted HED DPD and Proposals Map form part of the statutory development plan for the borough.
