Rochford District Council consultation
The Issues and Options Document public consultation is now open and will run for a period of 12 weeks, closing at 5pm on Wednesday 7 March 2018. We are encouraging all residents, businesses and other stakeholders to make their views known and help to shape the future of your district.
The Issues and Options Document is the first stage of Rochford District Council’s new Local Plan, which will set out the vision and strategy for the district up to 2037. The Document sets out a range of identified challenges and opportunities facing the district over the next 20 years, including how and where new homes should delivered, how to support and grow the local economy and jobs, what infrastructure will be needed and where, and how we will preserve our natural and historic environments. It is accompanied by a Sustainability Appraisal which examines the key sustainability issues with the identified options. The Issues and Options Document is your first opportunity to get involved in your new Local Plan and to help shape the future for your district.
The fastest and easiest way to view and comment on the Issues and Options Document is online at www.rochford.gov.uk/iao. Alternatively, paper reference copies and response forms will be available at Rochford and Rayleigh Council offices, Parish/Town Council offices and all local libraries during normal opening hours.
