Additional Comments Of The Independent Examiner 15th January 2020

Update – 8th November 2019

The Planning Inspectorate (Pins) shared the findings of the examination (Stage 1) to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) on 25th October 2019 in accordance with the published protocol. Unfortunately, the findings had not been released by MHCLG before the pre-election period which started on 6 November. The Planning Inspectorate has published its approach to casework during the pre-election period and will not be issuing any letters regarding the soundness or legal compliance of local plans, or final reports (including for fact check), until after the election. Therefore Wealden District Council will not be receiving the findings until after the election.

Wealden District Council is supporting Hellingly Parish Council in the preparation of a Neighbourhood Plan for the designated area. Further details relating to the development of the plan can be found below and also on the Hellingly Parish Council’s website (external link).
