Core Strategy 2007 information

The public hearings for the examination into the soundness of the Core Strategy took place between 23 and 24 January 2007. The Inspector's Report was received in May 2007. We adopted the Core Strategy on 24 July 2007. Together with the adopted Development Management policies, these documents set out the key policies that will be used to determine the location, amount, type and timing of new development within the borough in the period up to 2022.

The independent Inspector conducting the examination was Mr Simon Emerson BSc Dip TP MRTPI. He found the Core Strategy to be sound, subject to the incorporation of some changes. These are set out in the appendices to the Inspector's Report.
