Preferred Options Consultation Statement

The Central Lancashire Local Plan Preferred Options consultation ran for 10 weeks from Monday 19th December 2022 until Sunday 26th February 2023. The consultation was in the form of a Preferred Options Part One document which outlines strategic policy directions for the emerging Local Plan. Development requirements for housing and employment, along with potential site allocations to meet these uses were also consulted on.

We received over 928 responses to this consultation which have been logged and reviewed by the Central Lancashire Local Plan team.  We also hosted 30 drop-in events across Central Lancashire which gathered a total attendance of 834. The responses received have been used in the preparation of a Consultation Statement and will be used to help develop the Local Plan.
