Local Plan - frequently asked questions

How will the Local Plan contribute to delivering social value outcomes?

Policy LPA03 - A Strong and Sustainable Economy states that the Council will support the use of local suppliers of goods and services and the creation of apprenticeships and training opportunities for local people in accordance with the requirements of the Local Economy SPD.

Policy LPA03.1 states that detailed development proposals within a Strategic Employment Site must be accompanied by comprehensive package of training schemes and / or other measures to enable local residents (including unemployed and disadvantaged people) to access and benefit fully from the employment opportunities provided at the site.

Therefore, the implementation of the Local Plan will deliver social value outcomes, and the Council will work pro-actively to maximise such opportunities.
