In November 2020 we asked people living and working in the West of England for their views about the future of the region, to ensure the region is a greener, more connected place to live and work.
The feedback will help shape the Spatial Development Strategy that will make sure homes, employment spaces and transport links are planned in the right places over the next 20 years. This will give residents access to homes and opportunities for work, education and leisure across the WECA area.
The responses to the survey are now being reviewed and an engagement report will be published early in 2021, along with responses to the survey (where individuals have given their permission).
Alongside technical studies and evidence, the responses to the survey will feed in to the draft SDS. This will be published in Autumn 2021 and will be subject to a 12 week statutory consultation, providing opportunity to formally comment on the proposed plan.
