Northumberland Core Strategy out for consultation

Northumberland’s Core Strategy covering areas such as retailing, housing and employment has been released for public comment.

The Core Strategy Issues and Options document is being consulted on between 23 May and 15 August 2012.

This document is the first phase in establishing a principal planning document in Northumberland covering these key areas and provides an opportunity for the public to become involved in the engagement process.

The Core Strategy is the principal document in the Northumberland Local Development Framework.  It will be a statutory plan, setting out a vision and strategy for development in Northumberland over the next 15 years to address the challenges and opportunities faced.
