“It is the local guide to what can be built where, shaping infrastructure investments, and determining the future pattern of development.

“This plan strikes an important balance between the need for development, regeneration and renewal and the protection of the natural and historic environment.

“The plan also makes sure future development will take place in a planned way, supported by improvements to highways, healthcare facilities and other local infrastructure.

“This means we can continue to attract investment that creates jobs, opportunities and good quality homes.
