The Minerals Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State in June 2017. It will be subject to a public examination, expected to take place during September and October 2017, in line with the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme.
Inspector Jonathan Manning BSc (Hons) MA MRTPI has been appointed to conduct the examination to determine whether the plan is 'sound'. If it is, we anticipate adopting the plan in May 2018.
We have appointed an independent programme officer, Chris Banks, to guide the plan through the examination and act as an intermediary to the Inspector.
If you have any queries about the examination, the hearing sessions, or wish to raise an issue with the inspector, please contact the programme officer.
