  • Page 2 of 7

There are currently two documents available for public consultation. Both are available for comment between Friday 23rd May until Friday 18th July. All comments on these documents should be received by 4.30pm on the 18th July. There is an online questionnaire which can be completed via the following link. Comments and completed questionnaires can be sent to planningpolicy@hartlepool.gov.uk or via post to:

Planning Services, Civic Centre, Victoria Road, Hartlepool, TS24 8AY.

1) The first Consultation Document is the Local Plan Issues and Options Consultation Document. This is the first stage in the production of a new Local Plan for the town and your views would be appreciated and will help to inform the policies which will be included in the first draft Local Plan which will be formulated later this year. Also available for comment during this period in association with the Issues and Options Document is the Sustainability Scoping Report which has been updated from the previous version.

An alternative way to comment is via a series of survey monkey questionnaires which have been set up to focus on the various themes within the Issues and Options document. They can be accessed by following the links below.









2) The other main consultation document available is the Draft Planning Obligations SPD, the associated Habitats Regulations Assessment and the Sustainability appraisal. This SPD helps to provide guidance on what types of contributions will be required from various types and scales of development.
