Wyre outlines 15-year core strategy

Wyre Council's cabinet is due to consider its updated planning blueprint when it meets on 14 March.

The draft plan sets out priority areas for new homes, employment space and shops. If approved by the cabinet, the views of residents, business owners and community groups will then be sought in a public consultation before a final version of the strategy is eventually submitted for government inspection.

The strategy breaks the coastal Lancashire borough down into nine individual areas and provides policies to address the diverse needs of each; Fleetwood, Thornton, Cleveleys, Poulton and Carleton, Central Rural Plain (Out Rawcliffe to Bilsborrow), Garstang and Catterall, Rural East and Uplands, Rural West (Knott-End to Hambleton) and Wyre Sands.
Locations for future residential development and employment hubs are set out and other issues such as transport, biodiversity, flood risk, renewable energy and the historic environment are covered. Anticipated social, economic and environmental impacts are detailed in the strategy including how the rural character of the countryside and green belt will be conserved.
