After the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan was rejected by inspectors back in July, dates for a consultation for people to have their say on what happens next have been announced.
Independent examinations of the housing plan were suspended in the summer after government inspectors reviewing it outlined key areas where they considered further work was needed.
The inspectors raised concerns about whether the council’s assessment of the number of new homes needed has fully taken account of market signals, such as affordability and whether the plans are right to focus development in new settlements rather than more Green Belt releases on the edge of Cambridge.
The public consultation will run from Wednesday, December 2, to Monday, January 25.
Once the consultations close, the council, along with Cambridge City Council, will consider the feedback and present reports to councillors in March.
