Two Planning Inspectors, Rachel A Bust (Lead Inspector) and Nicholas Palmer, were appointed to undertake an independent examination of the soundness of the Plan. Four hearing sessions took place in September and October 2021.
Following the hearing sessions, the Central and Eastern Berkshire Authorities were given the opportunity to propose modifications to the submitted Joint Minerals and Waste Plan, in order to make it sound and legally compliant.
A consultation on the proposed Main Modifications took place from February to April 2022. Full details of the consultation can be found on the Joint Minerals and Waste Plan website. All comments relating to the Main Modifications were submitted to the Inspectors via the Programme Officer.
