Past consultation documents

This section looks at all the past consultation/engagement phases which inputted into the final Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan.

Please read the Statement of Consultation (July 2017) to get a more detailed breakdown of each stage of consultation.

Plymouth City Council

Before the decision was taken to write a Joint Local Plan, Plymouth City Council (PCC) undertook four stages of engagement on the Plymouth Plan:

Plymouth Plan: Conversation (up to July 2013)

The Plymouth Plan Conversation (up to July 2013) began the consultation process of the Plymouth Plan. Plymouth City Council started by setting up a 'What's the future' pop-up shop which proved to be a fantastic event which generated a huge amount of positive feedback. The Council also travelled around the city with a sofa where everyone was invited to come and have a sit on the sofa and chat about the future of Plymouth!

All the comments and suggestions were collected and processed and can be viewed on our consultation portal.

PCC1 Plymouth Plan: The conversation so far... Plymouth City Council June 2014

Plymouth Plan: Connections (up to October 2014)

Plymouth City Council produced 24 topic papers and eight area assessments to further inform conversation and collect further comments on the city which later fed into the overarching Plymouth Plan document.

Plymouth Plan: Check-up (up to March 2015)

Using all the comments and evidence base collected previously, a draft Plymouth Plan policy document was produced which painted an image of what the city could look like in 2031. It set out a course to move this city closer towards that vision as well as setting out the city's strategic role as a regional city and a major economic driver for the heart of the south west.
