Executive Leader's Announcements

Minutes:

The Executive Leader announced that the Council has received the proposed hearing timetable and guidance from the Inspector in relation to the Local Plan examination, alongside a series of ‘matters and issues’ questions which provide the Council and representors the opportunity to prepare written statements in advance of the hearing sessions.  The Inspector, Helen Hockenhull, is proposing hearing sessions starting on 8th March and running into early April.  At the moment, the proposal is that hearings take place virtually, although her guidance states that if COVID-19 restrictions change, it may be possible to hold the hearings face to face.  The programme officer will shortly be writing to those who commented on the Publication Local Plan with a further invite to confirm attendance at the hearings and support for those who wish to produce written statements in advance.  The Council’s website is being kept up to date with examination information and the Planning Strategy team is on hand to support residents who may wish to engage with the examination.
