Stage 2b - Themes, visions and objectives

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


This is a key point in the development of your plan where you will:

  • review all the information you have gathered
  • consider the community's views
  • decide which themes are a priority for your plan

This could include:

  • housing growth
  • building design
  • employment
  • environment
  • green space
  • heritage
  • renewable energy
  • community facilities

You need to develop a vision which:

  • summarises the plan themes
  • has a set of objectives to achieve that can help to communicate what your plan aims to do

A clear vision and set of objectives will go a long way towards providing a structure for your plan. This will help with deciding what policies you need and with writing good policies. 

There are a range of guide notes and templates to help you. Please see:
