Fundraising for the next phase of the process
The TWBC Local plan has now been submitted to the Government who have appointed Matthew Birkinshaw BA(Hons) MSc MRTPI as the Inspector to review all the documentation submitted, including our, and your, representations at Regulation 19. There is a lot to wade through so this will inevitably take him a while, maybe three months. The Inspector will consider all the evidence and identify his list of Matters, Issues and Questions (MIQs) that require further investigation. This provides us with the opportunity to submit further evidence in response.
Following that, the Inspector will hold public hearings to assist his judgment of whether the Local Plan is legally compliant and sound. He may identify ‘main modifications’ required to make the Plan sound, which would then go out for further public consultation.
Our Inspector now has control of the timetable, and the chart below shows only indicative timings. He has recently been assessing the Hambleton District Council local plan where a main modifications consultation occurred nearly 12 months after the public hearings.
