Consultation on the SHLAA and Local Plan Viability Assessment

Consultation on the SHLAA and Local Plan Viability Assessment

Start date: 8th October 2018
End date: 19th November 2018

What we're consulting on

We are publishing two pieces of the Liverpool Local Plan evidence base that were not ready when the Local Plan was made available for public consultation (Under Regulation 19 of the Development Plan Regulations) in January this year.  View the documents below.

Both are part of the evidence base for the Liverpool Local Plan which was submitted in May 2018 to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government for independent examination.

In addition to making any comments on the SHLAA or VA, anyone who made representations to the Submission Draft Local Plan during the consultation period which ran from January to March 2018 can supplement or amend any representation made under Regulation 19. 

Comments are also invited on the Omission Sites. These are sites that have previously been suggested to the City Council as suitable for residential development but which have not been included in the Submission Draft Local Plan. 

Finally, this is also an opportunity to submit any new suggestions for sites (Call For Sites) which might be developed in the future to meet Liverpool’s growth requirements or needs.

What happens to my views?

All comments will be given to the independent inspector, Mr Jonathan Bore MRTPI, appointed by the Government to examine the Liverpool Local Plan. Find out more about the examination of the Local Plan.

What happens next?

During the Local Plan examination, we will invite the inspector to take into account the comment made. The examination is expected to take place later this year and into early 2019.
