Consultation process

The Procedure Guide for Local Plan Examinations (February 2022) issued by the Planning Inspectorate makes it clear that the nature and duration of the consultation should reflect that of the consultation held at the Regulation 19 stage. This means that it should last at least six weeks and involve a range of methods of communication. These will include setting up an online consultation event (including notification to those on the local plan database), updating information on the Council’s website, providing hard copies of information at locations around the Borough (specific libraries, parish/town council offices and Time Square) and putting information on the Council’s social media pages.


• Neighbouring County, District and Borough Councils.
• Specific consultees (such as ‘duty to co-operate’ bodies and specific consultees, including Environment Agency, Natural England, Historic England and Homes England).
• General consultees (including residents, landowners and bodies which represent the interests of different groups).

Making Representations: In writing to the Director of Place, Planning & Regeneration

Financial Impact: The consultation forms part of the examination process which is being funded from the Development Plan budget.
