Rochford District Council have also made an interactive map available to help inform those responding to the consultation. A guide to using the map is also provided under Related Content.

 Rochford District Council are aware that planning issues can be technical and difficult to understand at first glance. As a result, they have published some Frequently Asked Questions which are linked from the Related Content section. These Frequently Asked Questions will be updated regularly.

Officers from the Strategic Planning team held an online information webinar on Wednesday 25 August. Information was provided about the consultation and responses were given to questions submitted in advance by members of the public. The webinar has been uploaded to Rochford District Council’s Youtube channel and can be watched back by those unable to watch live. Written responses have also been given to all of the questions submitted by members of the public, including those that could not be answered verbally during the webinar. These written responses are available at Spatial Options Virtual Webinar: Question Responses.

Interested parties are also encouraged to sign up to our planning mailing list

What happens next?

Once the consultations have closed Rochford District Council will consider all comments made and publish feedback reports summarising the main issues raised and providing an initial response.

The new Local Plan will then progress to the next stage, taking account of all representations received. A timetable for the preparation of the new Local Plan is provided on page 7 in the Local Development Scheme document in Related Content.

The Statement of Community Involvement will progress to Full Council at Rochford where the Council will need to consider what changes are required to the document and to consider adopting it.
