SAMDev - Update on consultation process

Published: 11th February, 2013

SAMDev Plan - Draft Development Management Policies consultation until 28th March 2013

As part of the on-going preparation of the Site Allocations and Management of Development Plan (SAMDev Plan) Shropshire Council is now consulting on a set of draft Development Management Policies until 28th March 2013.

This stage of consultation focuses on the detail of 16 proposed policies that, when adopted, will be used to help make decisions on planning applications and development proposals. Comments received on this consultation will help shape the final versions of these policies later in 2013.

The consultation documents do not contain any settlement or site specific information which will be subject to consultation later in the year.

Consultation documents and how to comment:

The consultation documents can be viewed on Shropshire Council's website ( where comments on the draft policies can also be submitted electronically via the online questionnaire. Shropshire Council is encouraging as many people as possible to submit their comments online to save time, paper and money. Alternatively if you wish to make your comments via e-mail please send them to (please put 'SAMDev Draft Policy Consultation' in the e-mail subject box).

Copies for inspection will also be made available in Libraries, Customer First Points and Shropshire Council offices. It is not intended to produce paper copies of either the Development Management Policies document or questionnaires because of the high cost involved, but all comments made will be accepted and considered.

If you wish to send your comments to us by post please send them to:
