Local Plan: Preferred Options Consultation

We are reviewing our adopted Local Plan. We are consulting on the Preferred Options stage NOW! The consultation closes at 4pm on Wednesday 19 June 2024. 

We are working with Cadent to design and relocate the Gas Pressure Reduction System (GPRS), which is currently located on the old gas works site. This will enable housing delivery on the site.

The proposed new location of the Gas Pressure Reduction System is on land to the south of the active Hill Road Allotments.

Cadent submitted a planning application for this in February 2022, with the reference 22/00239/FUL.

We granted planning permission in May 2022.


Works are now underway, with the following planned programme.

These dates may be subject to change and we will update these as works progress.
