Dear Sir/Madam

 The council is producing a new Local Plan document covering employment premises and industrial land. This document will form part of the Local Plan for Wandsworth, setting out relevant planning policies and allocating sites. It will replace the employment and industrial land policies in the existing Local Plan documents – the Core Strategy, Development Management Policies Document (DMPD) and the Site Specific Allocations Document (SSAD). To inform the employment and industry local plan document, the council are undertaking a policy options consultation.

This letter invites you to make representations on the Council’s policy options. The consultation will be carried out between 7 October and 4 November 2016.

The policy options are set out in a Policy Options Document, which has been informed by the responses to the Preparation Stage (Regulation 18) consultation carried out between December 2015 and January 2016, and the findings and recommendations of the Employment Land and Premises Study 2016.

 Responses made to the policy options consultation will be assessed and will inform the proposed submission version of the employment and industry local plan document.
