Update on the Local Plan timetable

Shropshire Council are consulting on a further Regulation 18 stage of the review of the Local Plan between August and September 2020.  This is an important additional stage of plan consultation and has been agreed in order to allow people a chance to have their say on a full draft of the Local Plan before the council proceeds to the statutory Regulation 19 stage of plan making. More information on this consultation can be viewed on this page and under the ‘Related information’ section.

This additional consultation at the Regulation 18 stage of plan making represents a change to the currently published Local Development Scheme (LDS). The LDS will be updated to reflect this. The Regulation 19 (publication version) of the Local Plan, along with consultation on the ‘soundness’ of the plan, will now happen in autumn / winter 2020. The proposed submission of the Local Plan will now take place in early 2021.
