Issues and options consultation. This consultation closed on 28 July 2017 and the responses are available to view.

The Rural Areas Sites Allocation Development Plan Document (RASA DPD) is seeking to provide a policy framework and growth proposals to support the delivery of the Herefordshire Core Strategy for those market towns or parishes which are not included within a neighbourhood development plan.

The issues and options paper of the RASA DPD, which was consulted upon between 12 June and 28 July 2017, presented a number of potential options for the scope of the document, that is, which parishes should be included within the plan. These options are dependent on the current progress of the neighbourhood development plan within the parish at April 2017. It also presented options regarding the range of policy topics which could be included, such as settlement boundaries, housing and employment allocations and primary shopping areas.

You can view a consultation statement highlighting the issues and options stage including a summary of responses received.
