Draft Bradford District Local Plan - Call for Sites consultation

Purpose of the consultation

What is the consultation about?


Alongside consultation on the draft Bradford District Local Plan, the Council is issuing a Call for Sites. 


The Council is particularly interested in the following site submissions at this stage:

           Residential sites particularly within the Regional City of Bradford.

           Sites for mineral extraction.

           Sites for waste disposal / recycling.

           Sites for Gypsy and Traveller Pitches.

           Sites for Renewable Energy (solar and wind primarily).

           Custom and Self-Build Housing Sites.

           Specialist Housing and Accommodation Sites


The Call for Sites submission form is available on the OpusConsult online consultation website. 


We encourage site suggestions to be submitted using the online form.  There is mapping software available through OpusMaps whereby you will be able to produce your own site boundary for submission.


Any additional plans or supporting evidence which you may wish us to consider can be uploaded onto the consultation website.


Please note that we are only looking for new site suggestions, so if you have already submitted a site to us, the outcome of our assessment will be published as part of the Local Plan consultation.  You will not need to re-submit the site to us.


How can I make comments?


Please use the OpusConult consultation website to access the electronic Call for Sites Form and to upload any relevant documents.


You will need to register to use the system for the first time.  Once registered, you are able to draft, review and submit your comments at your convenience.
