Next steps

We are now acknowledging all the representations received and these will be able to view on this webpage shortly. Due to the volume of representations received this may take some time.

During June the Joint Core Strategy, supporting documents, Sustainability Appraisal and the key issues raised through the consultation and how they have been addressed in the DPD will be submitted to the Secretary of State (this is called the 'Submission' stage). It will then be examined by a Planning Inspector who will consider whether it complies with legal requirements and is 'sound'.
