Consultation process

Public consultation is to take place during March/April/May. The process for producing local plans is prescribed in the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended). Recent legislation temporarily removes the requirement to make documents available for public inspection at premises and to provide hard copies. The documents must, instead, be made available for inspection online due to concern about the spread of Covid-19.
