Following the further hearing sessions, the Appointed Inspectors have published their report. Their report concludes that the duty to cooperate has been met, and that the Joint Local Plan - with the recommended Main Modifications, as set out in the Appendix to the report, is sound and capable of adoption.
The report is accompanied by an Appendix which contains the Main Modifications:
Part 1 of the Joint Local Plan will be considered for adoption at Full Council meetings in November 2023.

The Planning Inspectorate would like your feedback about the Examination. If you made comments in writing - or took part in a hearing session - please complete our short online survey. This survey will be open for five weeks, until Thursday 26 October 2023.
Any comments you make will be confidential.
The Appointed Inspectors have published an agenda for the further hearing sessions (Document H44 in the Core Document Library).
We have also published summary officer comments to the main objection issues through the Proposed Modifications Consultation, which are available to access in the Core Document Library.
The further hearing sessions - which began on Monday 26 June 2023 - were livestreamed. You can watch them back on our Joint Local Plan YouTube channel.
We have published a notice, which confirms the start date of the further hearing sessions (Document H38 in the Core Document Library). The programme of further hearing sessions is available, too (Document H41).
We have also written to the Inspectors, to confirm that following the recent local elections, we wish to progress and adopt the Joint Local Plan in a timely way (Document G13).
