Local Development Plan consultation
Main Issues Report
The Main Issues Report (MIR) is the main consultation stage in preparing the Local Development Plan (LDP). It sets out options for the LDP. You can find out more about the MIR by watching our video.
You can download the MIR and Monitoring Statement below. Monitoring was essential for determining what the issues were for the MIR and for justifying why some parts of the existing Local Plans needed to change. As such, the Monitoring Statement forms an important part of the evidence base for the MIR and subsequent LDP.
Consultation on the MIR took place between November 2011 and January 2012. Over 400 responses were received. You can download summaries from the consultation events below.
