Pre-Publication Consultation on the Local Plan

The consultation on the first draft of the Local Plan, which took place from 8 July until 19 August 2016, is now closed.

About the consultation

The Local Plan sets out a 15-year strategic vision, objectives and the spatial strategy as well as the planning policies and site allocations that will guide future development of the borough.

The Plan looks ahead to 2033 and identifies where the main developments will take place, and how places within the borough will change, or be protected from change, over that period.

This Pre-Publication consultation follows an informal Scoping Consultation, which took place in January 2016.

Consultation responses

The Council considered all responses received on the Pre-Publication Local Plan consultation(pdf, 1755KB) and the appendices (large PDF). The analysis is set out in the Summary of main issues raised during public consultation on the Pre-Publication Local Plan, December 2016 (pdf, 1.4 MB), including a summary of all responses received and the Council's response. This has informed the next step as set out in the timetable for reviewing and preparing the Local Plan.

For information, we are not reviewing the Area Action Plan for Twickenham centre, which was adopted in 2013. Note that separate workshops and consultations were being undertaken for Twickenham Riverside and the creation of a new heart for Twickenham around the time of the Pre-Publication consultation.
