In December 2012 a technical writer was engaged to translate all of this effort into the draft Plan. Draft policies, and the site proposals received from landowners and developers, were publicised in early January 2013 and two drop-in events were held on 12th January. At these events, and on this website, people were invited to comment on the policies and housing development scenarios which endeavoured to meet the communities aspirations. Over 160 people attended and their comments may be found below.
