The South Worcestershire Councils (SWCs) i.e. Malvern Hills District Council, Worcester City Council and Wychavon District Council, are progressing a review of the South Worcestershire Development Plan (SWDP). The South Worcestershire Development Plan Review (SWDPR) Issues and Options consultation, scheduled for November-December 2018, will seek views on whether a Development Boundary Review is necessary and appropriate. Work on the Development Boundary Review process as part of the SWDPR is subject to support in the Issues and Options Consultation. At this stage, the SWCs are consulting on the proposed methodology for the Development Boundary Review, including the assessment of existing Development Boundaries and identification of new Development Boundaries.
