Local Plan examination (LP1)

Before we can adopt our Local Plan, it goes through several stages of public consultation. It is also checked to make sure it complies with government policies and regulations. Finally, we submit it to the Secretary of State for independent examination by the Planning Inspectorate. 

Further updates about the progress of the Examination will be posted on this webpage in due course. If you have any queries in the meantime, please contact the Programme Officer, Andrea Copsey;
