The statutory consultation on the SPDs has now finished. Thank you to those who contributed. Your views are important and will be taken into account. The main points made will be summarised in a statement together with an explanation of how the Council intends to address them. We are likely to seek formal adoption at the end of September 2011.
Following the resolution of the Council’s Executive on 2 June 2011, the statutory consultation for the 5 SDL SPDs and the emerging Managing Development Delivery was between 15 June and 27 July 2011. This consultation has now closed.”
