The South Worcestershire Councils (SWCs) started a review of the SWDP in late 2017 in response to new Government requirements that Development Plans should be updated every five years, meaning a revised SWDP is required by 2021. The review, which will provide an updated plan period to 2041, will update the existing SWDP and where necessary its vision, objectives, spatial strategy and policies for the future development of the South Worcestershire area. The second part of the plan includes site allocations, policies and policy designations that will provide for the development needs of the area up to 2041.
