Marton Moss neighbourhood planning approach

Marton Moss neighbourhood planning approach

What does the Blackpool Local Plan Part 1: Core Strategy say about Marton Moss?

The core strategy was adopted in January 2016 and identifies the remaining lands at Marton Moss as being integral to the local distinctiveness of Blackpool and is highly valued by the local community.

Policy CS26 sets out a neighbourhood planning approach. This means getting the community more involved in deciding what you want for the area, for example how to retain the Moss’ distinctive character as well as deciding where and what type of development may be acceptable.

There are two ways which we can go about developing this policy framework:

A.            One way is for the local community to develop your own Neighbourhood Plan.

B.            The other way is for the council to lead on developing specific policies for Marton Moss and include them in Part 2 of the Blackpool Local Plan – the Site Allocations and Development Management document

What happens next?

A report on the recent consultation will be produced setting out the results of the survey.

We will consider all the responses received and residents and businesses will be informed of the outcome.
