The final public consultation has begun on Havering’s Local Plan after modifications were advised by a planning inspector.

Residents will get the chance until October 12 to offer their views on the proposals, which represent a guide to development in the borough up until 2032.

A council spokesperson said a government planning inspector suggested some changes needed to be made before it can adopt it.

Council leader Damian White said: “As Havering begins to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, our new Local Plan will have a key role in shaping the borough’s future.

“This consultation offers residents the final opportunity to give their feedback and I encourage everyone to take part.”
