Planning Policy Consultation

Regulation 22 Consultation on Proposed Changes to the Core Strategy

We held a six-week consultation from 15 October - 26 November, during which comments were sought on a series of changes to the Core Strategy. The changes were set out in a document called Identified Changes.

These changes related to comments made during a previous consultation on the Regulation 19 version of the Strategy held in May and June this year.

These changes have been incorporated into a new version of the Core Strategy, the Submission Version, which was submitted to the Secretary of State on the 28 September in preparation to an Examination in Public of the plan by the Planning Inspectorate. You can download the Submission Version, with all the changes marked.

The proposed changes were also considered as part of the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) Process. The findings are presented in the SA Addendum Report.

If you wish to know more about the Submission stage of the Core Strategy, including the other accompanying documents that have also been sent to the Secretary of State, then please see Core Strategy Submission Stage.

Please note that this consultation related solely to the changes being proposed to the Core Strategy as set out in the document called "Identified Changes" mentioned above.  All responses to this consultation will be provided to the Inspector as part of the forthcoming examination process.
