24. Luppitt


The Luppitt Neighbourhood Plan is now at examination.  The examination commenced on 13th May 2022.  The appointed independent examiner is Mary O'Rourke.

The examination will review the contents of the Plan and the responses to the recent Submission Consultation.  It will consider if the Plan complies with the relevant legal requirements and whether it can go forward to the final stages of plan making (either in its current form, or with any amendments). 

The examiner has been provided with a full set of documentation, including all responses to the recent Submission consultation (shown further below). 

The Examiner has provided a Procedural letter which includes a number of questions for Luppitt Parish Council/Neighbourhood Plan group and East Devon District Council.  The responses by Luppitt Parish Council and East Devon District Council are now available, together with a late representation relating to the Examiner's questions by Mrs H Plummer that has been accepted by the Examiner.  Any further documentation related to the examination, including the Examiner's Report, will be published here when available.
