Huntingdonshire District Council has launched the Issues Papers consultation as part of the next stage of the development of the council’s new Local Plan.

Responding to this consultation, which runs for 10 weeks until Wednesday 5 July, is an opportunity for people to shape the future of Huntingdonshire.

The consultation highlights known issues in the district and asks for people’s opinions on topics including:

  • responding to the climate crisis

  • enhancing the natural environment

  • supporting places

  • meeting housing needs for all

  • promoting a prosperous economy

  • developing high quality sustainable communities with supporting infrastructure and

  • distributing new growth.

Executive Councillor for Planning, Cllr Tom Sanderson, said: "The Issues Paper is a fundamental step in starting to prepare a new local plan for Huntingdonshire. It seeks to find out what local residents, communities, businesses and organisations think the priorities are for improving the district for future generations and how to reduce the impacts of the climate crisis and ecological emergency on the local area.

"It’s important we hear from as many people as possible, so please do take the time to have your say on the things that matter the most to you. You only need to respond to the particular topics or questions that you are interested in."

There are three options to help people respond to the consultation:

People can complete the consultation online via the planning consultation portal.

The Local Plan is an important district council document that sets the statutory planning framework for the district, shaping development many years into the future.
