Examination

Mr Michael J Hetherington BSc (Hons) MA MRTPI was appointed by the Secretary of State to conduct the Examination.  The role of an Inspector is to consider whether a document is (a) is legally compliant (i.e. meets the requirements of the Planning and Compulsory Act 2004 and associated Regulations) and (b) satisfies the criteria for soundness (i.e. whether it is justified, effective and consistent with national policy).

To assist those unfamiliar with the examination process, the Inspector provided guidance on the procedural aspect of public examinations of development plan documents (DPDs), and this is included on the Core Strategy Examination Archive page as Document Reference H02.  Further information is available from the Planning Inspectorate: Guide to Examining Development Plan Documents (this is an external hyperlink).


Examination hearings

Hearings were held on 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th and 10th May. Mr Michael J Hetherington BSc (Hons) MA MRTPI was the Inspector appointed to run the Hearings as part of the Examination of the Core Strategy. Examination Hearings are relatively informal and inclusive round table sessions.  The Inspector led a discussion on the matters he identified from the representations and the evidence base.
