Residents in Ribble Valley are invited to have their say on proposed housing and economic development sites in the borough.

Ribble Valley Borough Council’s housing and economic development plan document has been published for consultation until Friday, June 9th.

The document, or DPD, outlines land set aside for housing and economic development in the borough and will be used to determine planning applications until 2028.

The DPD also outlines work undertaken on retail and town centre boundaries, open space designations and revised settlement boundaries, as well as where development is likely to take place, including committed sites and a small number of new allocations, although it is not a review of the Core Strategy.

The views of residents are sought on the document before it is submitted to the Government for consideration.

The document can be viewed at ribblevalley.gov.uk or the Ribble Valley Borough Council Offices in Clitheroe, from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm. It can also be viewed at Clitheroe, Longridge and Mellor Libraries, the Civic Hall and the Station Buildings in Longridge.

Comments should be e-mailed to publicationreg19@ribblevalley.gov.uk or posted to DPD Consultation, Forward Planning Team, Ribble Valley Borough Council Offices, Church Walk, Clitheroe, Lancashire, BB7 2RA, by 5pm on June 9th.

Further details are available from Ribble Valley Borough Council’s forward planning team on 01200 425111.
