Our Local Plan has today (Friday 31 August 2018) been submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination.
This is in accordance with the Planning Committees resolution of 18 April, 2018 and Chair of Planning Committee Tom Munro said, “As Chair of the Planning Committee, I feel privileged to oversee the submission of the Local Plan for Bolsover District to the Secretary of State for examination. I would like to thank not only the Planning Policy team for all their hard work, but also to thank all of the Members of the Planning Committee and the Local Plan Steering group, past and present, who made such important contributions in taking the hard decisions that were needed to bring the Plan to this position.
“The matter is now in the hands of the Planning Inspectorate and I look forward to our Examination and the formal adoption of the Local Plan in the future.”
Whilst the matter is now in the hands of the Planning Inspectorate, we will be continuing to review all of the representations and where possible consider if minor alterations to the plan and further discussions can help to resolve any outstanding issues.
Formal notification will also be given to everyone on the Local Plan database who has requested to be told of the submission of the Plan. More details along with the full evidence base are available on our Local Plan pages.
Over the next three weeks the Planning Inspectorate will seek to appoint an Inspector who will be responsible for considering the Plan and setting the timescale and nature of the hearings to be held into the Plan.
Further updates will appear on our website as matters progress.
