Next Steps

We hope that our appraisal of the representative options together with your feedback from this consultation will provide us with the information we need to prepare draft proposals for the future of the three sites.


The process through which we intend to progress from the options appraisal work to the submission of a planning application for the sites is likely to be as follows:​


Following Consultation:

  1. Development of draft proposals for the sites

  2. Engagement with officers and councillors to present the results of the second round of community and stakeholder consultation and our response, including our draft proposals (engagement with officers is likely to take place through a formal pre-application advice request)

  3. Development of a final scheme design (including further engagement with officers and councillors if necessary)

  4. Preparation and submission of planning application (planning application process provides a 3 week window for comment on application scheme for all interested parties)
