PUBLICATION OF THE INSPECTORS' REPORT ON THE EXAMINATION OF THE NEW FOREST DISTRICT (OUTSIDE THE NATIONAL PARK) LOCAL PLAN 2016-2036 PART 1: PLANNING STRATEGY
On 25 March 2020 we received the Inspectors’ Report on the Examination of the New Forest District (outside the National Park) Local Plan 2016-2036 Part 1: Planning Strategy. The Report concludes that “the New Forest District (outside the National Park) Local Plan-Part 1: Planning Strategy (the Local Plan) provides an appropriate basis for the planning of the New Forest District Council planning authority area, provided that a number of main modifications are made to it.” The Report appends the modifications required. The main modifications all concern matters that were discussed at the examination hearings.
The Inspectors’ Report is published online at: http://www.newforest.gov.uk/article/16541/Local-Plan-2016-2036-Part-1-Planning-Strategy
With the current situation regarding the Covid-19 virus, because of the need to close public offices, physical copies of the Report will not be accessible at the normal deposit points. If this presents an issue of access to the Report for you, please contact us by e-mail or telephone and we will endeavour to make alternative arrangements for you.
It is our intention to formally consider the adoption of the Local Plan 2016-2036 Part 1: Planning Strategy at the Cabinet and Council meetings in May (6 May and 18 May), or as soon as practically possible. The website will give updates on the situation.
