Stages in the Production of the Core Strategy
The stages which preceded the Core Strategy DPDs adoption are detailed below.
Core Strategy Examination (June 2010- February 2011)
The Core Strategy underwent public examination between June 2010 and February 2011 to assess whether the document complied with legislation and whether it was a 'sound' plan, under the terms of planning guidance. The Submission Core Strategy was supplemented with a number of minor proposed and further proposed changes which were considered by the independent Planning Inspector and Representors involved in the documents examination. Following this the Inspectors Binding Report was issued in February 2011.
