SMBC Publish Draft Local Plan Report – Consultation Commences

During November 2016, SMBC published their Draft Local Plan report and proposals for releasing particular sites for either housing or employment development. These were submitted to Cabinet, who approved the Draft Local Plan Consultation, which will run from 5 December 2016 to 30 January 2017. Whilst current proposals protect Tidbury Green from further major housing development there are a number of sites proposed in nearby surrounding areas, which will inevitably have an impact on the transport network and other resources

Further details and associated documents including the Draft Local Plan Report, the consultaion document, detailing how to share your views can be viewed on the SMBC Website.

At the October 2016 Parish Council meeting Borough Councillor Ken Hawkins provided an update on the Solihull Local Plan. Solihull MBC will finalise and submit their preferred options report to Cabinet in November 2016. This will include findings of the Green Belt Review. If necessary this will be refined, with the aim of it being ready for Public Examination in early 2017. Solihull MBC plan to have the revised Solihull Local Plan adopted by October/ November 2017.

Borough Councillor Ken Hawkins estimated that during the period covered by the revised Local Plan, Solihull have to accommodate land for an additional 8.0k homes, of which 2.5k are likely to be built in the Blythe area.
