What happens next?

Extensive technical work will be needed on all these areas of search, including infrastructure planning (schools, transport, healthcare), employment, and many other issues before the Council is in a position to begin to develop a view as to the best locations for future development.

The results of the consultation and the technical work will then be used to begin to develop a draft plan next year, ensuring that all the alternatives have been properly considered and the reasons behind the Council's decisions are clear.
