Call for Sites
What is the Call for Sites?
The call for sites process is an opportunity for developers and landowners to put forward sites to the Council that they believe are suitable for development immediately and throughout the next 10 – 15 years. The sites submitted can be for development for multiple uses including, for e.g. housing, industry, commerce and recreation.
Who can submit a site?
Anyone with land is invited to submit sites for assessment.
How do I submit a site for consideration?
The Call for Sites process is due to open for submissions in Autumn 2017; please note that the submission date may be subject to change. Land owners and developers can submit sites to the Planning Service using the Call for Sites submission form.
Please bear in mind that the submission of a site through the Call for Sites process only places the site before the Council for consideration as a potential site for future allocation. It does not guarantee its allocation, nor does it prejudice any decision the Council may wish to take should an application for any site be forthcoming.
What if I have a site with development potential in the current LDP?
If you have a site in the existing Local Development Plan that you are still looking to develop, then we would ask you to resubmit your site during the call for sites process using the submission form.
All sites will be assessed by the Planning Service; we will also consult other sections of the Council and outside organisations depending on the proposed use of the site. We may contact you for additional information as the site progresses through the process.
Once we have completed the site assessments we will inform you if your site will be proposed for allocation within the Local Development Plan or not. We will also give you feedback on your site.
If you would like to be kept up to date with the Call for Sites process please complete the information request form below to be added to our contact database.
