Borough Local Plan
Planning update 21 - Oct 2020 - Borough Local Plan
Progress with the Borough Local Plan remains slow, with the initial consultation starting back in 2016. However Examination of the Plan is resuming in accordance with Government COVID-19 guidelines and the Inspector issued her Matters, Issues and Questions (MIQs) for Stage 2 of the Examination in June. OGFRA made a submission to the Inspector on the MIQs and asked to participate in the Stage 2 Hearings which are scheduled to take place online over 15 days in October and November.

After the Hearings, and if the Inspector determines that the Submission Version of the Borough Local Plan can be made ‘sound’ subject to certain changes, a further consultation would then take place on those changes (known as ‘Main Modifications’). This could ultimately lead to formal adoption of a modified Plan by RBWM in 2021.
