New Local Plan Review - Examination
The Council has been working on a New Local Plan Review (NLPR) since late 2020. Following four rounds of public consultation, on 1 February 2023 Full Council approved the NLPR for submission to the Secretary of State for examination. The NLPR was submitted to the Secretary of State on 8 February 2023 and all the submitted documents are available on the links below under the heading Core Documents.
All the responses received to the last Publication Policies (Regulation 19) consultation are available on-line. The examination will include public hearings (dates will be confirmed by the Planning Inspector and will be published on this page). Anyone can attend to observe the hearings but only those who made an objection to the Publication Policies (Regulation 19) consultation may be invited to participate by the Planning Inspector. Those who are invited to participate in the examination should read the Planning Inspectorate's Procedure Guide for Local Plan Examinations. The Planning Inspectorate have produced a short guide for those taking part in a local plan examination.
This webpage will be continually updated as the NLPR progresses through examination.

The Planning Inspector will consider the soundness of the NLPR based on the 'tests of soundness' set out in paragraph 35 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

Helen is impartial and will work under the direction of the appointed Inspector; she will coordinate all communication between the parties to the Examination and the Inspector.
