Respond to homes blueprint

By Tim Clarke Friday 11 January 2013 Updated: 11/01 11:00

RESIDENTS are being asked to help determine whether a blueprint for the future of housing and economic growth in south Worcestershire is legally sound.

A new six week consultation opened today (Friday) on the South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP) which maps out how the region will accommodate 23,000 new homes by 2030.

The SWDP has been jointly prepared by Worcester City Council, Malvern Hills District Council and Wychavon District Council and once adopted, it will form the basis for planning decisions during the next two decades.

The consultation can be found at www.swdevelopmentplan.org and printed copies of the forms will also be available at council offices and libraries.

Responses can be made online or completed forms can be sent to contact@swdevelopmentplan.org or posted to South Worcestershire Development Plan Team, FREEPOST RLTS-XRLK-AKGK, Orchard House, Farrier Street, Worcester WR1 3BB.
