Infrastructure study

What is the Infrastructure Study?

The council has prepared an Infrastructure Study to support the production of the Local Plan, and in particular, the Strategy and Allocations Documents. The main purpose of the Study is to identify the various forms of infrastructure that are required to meet growth which may come forward over the period 2009/10 to 2026 (as set out in the Preferred Approach Core Strategy).
