The Deposit LDP will be considered by an independent inspector who will assess if it is ‘sound’. There are a number of tests of soundness and these can be found on the form for making representations. Objections to the deposit LDP should make reference to these tests wherever possible.
Any representation proposing to add a new site should include a sustainability appraisal that uses the same sustainability framework as set out in the Council’s Sustainability Appraisal of the Plan. The information must be consistent with the scope and level of detail in the Council’s sustainability appraisal and should refer to the same baseline information in identifying the likely significant effects of the revised policy or new site.
The Local Planning Authority can decide if it is in favour of any changes proposed and may itself put forward ‘Focussed Changes’ for the inspector to consider. Representations ‘duly made’ will also be considered by the inspector appointed to examine the soundness of the plan.
