The Minerals Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State at the end of May 2017. This will be subject to public examination hearings during September 2017 in Chichester, in line with the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme.
Inspector Jonathan Manning BSc (Hons) MA MRTPI was appointed to conduct the examination to determine whether the plan is 'sound' and legally compliant.
Representations period – 15 January to 9 March 2018
During the examination hearings, discussions revealed that a number of modifications to the Plan were likely to be necessary before the Inspector could confirm his findings.
The modifications were subject to a period of representations to allow their legal compliance and soundness to be scrutinised. A link to the schedule of modifications can be found below.
All submitted representations are being added to the Examination document library, which is available at the bottom of this page.
The Planning Inspector is considering the representations received. He will either require further hearing sessions or will issue his final report on the Plan’s soundness and legal compliance.

If you have any queries about the examination, hearing sessions, or wish to raise an issue with the inspector, please contact the programme officer.
