SHEFFIELD ON COURSE TO COMPLETE DEVELOPMENT PLAN

Sheffield City Council looks set to become the first South Yorkshire council to complete its unitary development plan.

The plan, which guides planning decisions across the city, covers land use, buildings, transport and the local environment. All local councils have a statutory responsibility to draw up a district-wide plan; some are doing so for the first time. This is Sheffield's first city-wide plan for 40 years, although there have been local plans for particular areas such as the city centre.

The final version follows extensive consultations and a public inquiry into objections. The inquiry inspector's recommendations were accepted by the council with only minor vairations. Only 19 individuals or organisations raised objections to the final round of modifications and it has been concluded that no further significant changes are needed.

Sheffield's head of planning, transport and highways, Narendra Bajaria, said: 'Adoption will mark a major milestone for the planning of the city. We have consulted widely. The plan has very broad support and will help the city to develop into the new millennium in a way that meets the needs and aspirations of its people.'
