New Local Plan next steps
Submission of the Local Plan marks the beginning of a public examination process. Independent Planning Inspectors have been appointed to carry out an independent examination of the Local Plan and Policies Maps and determine whether they are sound, legally compliant and fulfil the duty to co-operate.
New Local Plan Independent Programme Officer
We have appointed an independent Programme Officer, Carole Crookes, to assist the independent Inspector through the examination. Carole will be responsible for all procedural matters relating to the examination, and all future correspondence with respondents to the Local Plan regarding the independent examination will be through her.
This is a continuous process running from the date of submission through to when we receive the appointed Planning Inspector’s Report. Part of this process will involve hearing sessions where attendees will have the opportunity to respond to matters raised by the appointed Planning Inspector. The submission of further written material to the examination will be determined by the Inspector.
Following instruction by the appointed Inspectors, the Council held a consultation on the Proposed Modifications to the Local Plan prior to hearing sessions between 10 June and 22 July 2019.
Once confirmed, all further details relating to the examination process will be advertised, made available online and sent to all respondents.
