The following is a record of the information supplied and the results of three major informal community exercises prior to production of a Draft Plan and Regulation 14 consultations.

Following Community Conversations in August 2016, a Consultation Paper (in Summary and Full Versions) was distributed to every household in December 2016 with an accompanying questionnaire. This was supplemented by a "call for sites". A report on these Community Consultations was produced in January 2017.

That exercise then facilitated further refinement of Draft Plan Policies, Objectives and site selections which were tested at Exhibition Days in May / June 2017. A full Report on that Community Dialogue was produced in June 2017.
