Local Plan close to being adopted, EDDC Leader tells Cabinet

Leave a comment

Following Councillor Paul Diviani’s announcement at last night’s Cabinet meeting at Knowle, Ed Freeman (Service Lead – Planning) has sent out this message:

“The Council has just received what is known as the Fact Check Reports from the Local Plan Inspector in relation to both the Local Plan and the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) charging schedule. These documents provide us with what the Planning inspectorate’s guidance describes as “tentative final report”. The guidance is clear that it is not for us to question the Inspectors conclusions and that the report is not for publication. We can simply respond within 2 weeks for clarification or to address any factual issues. I can however say that the report concludes that both the Local Plan and CIL charging schedule are sound and can move to adoption subject to main modifications. Unfortunately I am unable to give any further details at this time but can assure you that when we receive the Inspectors final report it will be published as soon as possible following receipt. ”
