The ‘Publication Draft’ Consultation

As yet, no formal details have been confirmed for the consultation. The ‘Publication Draft’ document must be put to the Local Plan Working Group (22nd September 2014) and the Council’s Cabinet (25th September 2014) who are likely to vote it through to public consultation. If this happens, opposition Councillors are very likely to ‘call in’ this decision for scrutiny, which will undoubtedly delay the beginning of the consultation.
