Local Plan Review Update

 

1.       INTRODUCTION AND BACKGROUND

 

1.1     At the 10th March 2020 meeting of the Strategic Planning and Infrastructure (SPI) Committee, Members resolved that officers should provide a short-written update at each meeting of the committee, concerning any slippage and/or progress on delivering the plan on the timescale agreed. This report provides the requested update.

 

1.2     The Local Planning Authority is working to a timetable set out in the approved Local Development Scheme (July 2021). This document provides for a Local Plan Review consultation under Regulation 19 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulation 2012 (as amended) from October 2021.

 

1.3     Significant progress has been made on the Local Plan Review and the Regulation 19 consultation is on course to take place as planned, in accordance with the approved Local Development Scheme.

 

1.4     The Regulation 19 consultation will be on the ‘draft for submission’ version of the Local Plan Review documents. These documents are now being finalised and are the documents that the Local Planning Authority intend to subsequently submit to the Secretary of State for Housing Communities and Local Government, in order that an Inspector may be appointed to independently examine the proposals.

 

1.5     The majority of new technical evidence is also being finalised. In conjunction with already published evidence, this will help to support the Local Plan Review proposals. The latest evidence will be published with the proposed draft for submission documents in order that this committee may consider these concurrently. Having considered the draft for submission documents and evidence, the committee may then choose whether to make a recommendation to Full Council to undertake the Regulation 19 public consultation.

 

1.6     The report on the Local Plan Review Regulation 19 documents and latest evidence base is on course to be brought to this committee on 4th October 2021 and then to Full Council on 6th October 2021.
