Inclusion of St George’s Barracks within the 2017 Local Plan

Last Summer the County Council issued a consultation document seeking views on the inclusion of a development at St George’s Barracks within the Local Plan. The results of this consultation have been quietly published and can be found on the County Council’s Web Site at:

The results of the consultation show that there is very little, if any, support for the inclusion of the St George’s Barracks Site within the Local Plan. That is to say that there is strong condemnation and concern at the proposals put forward by the County Council. Your voice has been heard – the challenge will now be to make RCC change the current proposal to build over 2,200 new homes on the site. The Parish Council will be publishing a response to the consultation document shortly, which we will send to every County Councillor.

For ease of Reference I am attached the key documents to this post:
