1. February-March 2014 Hearing Sessions

The examination of the Local Plan started at the point at which it was submitted, it is at this point at which the Inspector starts to consider the plan and its evidence.  The Local Plan has been subject to a number of initial hearing sessions, these were held in February and March 2014.  Prior to the hearing sessions and on 26 September 2013 the Planning Inspector wrote a letter raising a number of matters including a request that the council produce topic papers on housing, affordable housing and employment.

In response to this letter we produced a briefing note in respect of points raised.  We responded to the inspector with a letter dated 4 October 2013.

All examination documentation and correspondence between us and the Inspector can be found on the programme officer's web page.
