Development policies publication
The Development management local plan proposed submission or 'publication' version is the version the Council wish to submit to the Secretary of State for independent examination and adoption.
In general terms to be ‘sound’ means that the Council has all the various evidence reports required to justify the Council’s position and that the document will be effective, in that it is deliverable, flexible and able to be monitored. It must also be consistent with national policy.
Consultation on the proposed submission version of the plan ran for eight weeks from Friday 16 August to Friday 4 October 2013.
The proposed submission documents can be viewed below.
