Making Spaces for Growing Places


The Making Spaces for Growing Places (MSGP) Local Plan Document (LPD) is Part 3 of our Local Plan, following the adoption of the Core Strategy and Urban Core Plan in 2015  (CSUCP) (forming parts 1 and 2). MSGP intends to:

  • set out detailed policies to both assist applicants, and inform decisions made on planning applications.
  • allocate land for particular types of development.
  • designate land on the basis of its use or quality, including Conservation Areas, Retail Centres and Local Wildlife Sites, for example.
  • identify areas where there may be limitations on development.
