Derry City & Strabane District Council publishes its 'Local Development Plan 2032' Preferred Options Paper

Derry City & Strabane District Council has published its 'Local Development Plan 2032' Preferred Options Paper.  It is open for consultation until Tuesday 22nd August 2017.

The Preferred Options Paper (POP) is the first formal consultation stage in the preparation of the Council’s Local Development Plan (LDP) for Derry City and Strabane District and sets out the Council’s initial proposals and policy direction. The POP provides the basis for consulting with the public and stakeholders on a series of options for dealing with key issues in the Plan area.

This provides landowners and developers, or anyone else with an interest in land in the Derry City and Strabane Council area, with an important opportunity to ensure their views are taken into account as the Development Plan is produced by the Council.

Richard Bowman, Director of Planning at Strategic Planning said:

"Early engagement with the Council on the Local Plan Process is essential if you are serious about making as strong a case as possible for your land and property interests.

"We are happy to provide landowners and developers with advice and to produce representations in response to the POP on their behalf to help ensure their interests are protected.

"I would encourage anyone with land in the Derry City & Strabane District Council area to get in touch with Strategic Planning to discuss the contents of the POP and what it means for them."

Derry City & Strabane District Council is hosting a number of consultation events across the area in the coming months, further details can be accessed here.
