Current consultation opportunities

The JCS team has recently launched an informal public consultation on the draft Part 1 of the Joint Core Strategy. Part 1 includes:

  • A ‘spatial portrait’ of the JCS area
  • Key issues faced by the JCS area
  • A vision of how the area may be in future, and
  • The strategic objectives to be fulfilled if the issues are to be resolved and the vision is to be delivered.

Part 2 will set out the policies to guide development in pursuit of the vision and will be consulted on in due course. If you wish to view or comment on Part 1 please visit: The public consultation on this document runs from 14th June to 5pm on the 9th August
Future consultation

The JCS project timetable is currently being reviewed in light of the Coalition Government’s recent changes to the planning system. Future consultation events will be announced thereafter.
