On the 23 March 2016  the Council submitted LPP2 for examination by an independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State. All the representations received during the consultation on the Publication LPP2 have been sent to the Inspector, together with a number of supporting documents. You can view the documents submitted for examination on the LPP2 Submission webpage.   

During the examination, the Inspector will assess whether the Plan meets the relevant legal requirements, complies with the Duty to Cooperate, and is sound.  The examination will include hearing sessions where interested parties may be invited by the Inspector to discuss the Plan.
Further information on the examination of LPP2 can be found on the LPP2 Examination webpage.

After the hearings, the Inspector will produce a report setting out their findings and recommendations. The Council may publish modifications to the Plan before this and there will be consultations on these.

If the Inspector finds the Plan to be sound and legally compliant, with or without modifications, the Council will proceed to adopt the Plan.
