It is anticipated that Bromsgrove District Council will consult on their Local Plan Review Issues and Options Update, and also undertake a ‘Call for Sites’ during the 6 weeks from 30th September to the 11th November 2019.

The forthcoming consultation proposes a new plan end date of 2040 which, it sug
