In May 2018 Lancaster City Council submitted the Lancaster District Local Plan 2011-2031 to the Government. An Inspector, Richard McCoy, has been appointed to independently examine the ‘soundness’ and legal compliance of the submitted plan. The Local Plan documents and evidence were published for consultation in February 2018.
Lancaster City Council has published additional evidence and information to support the submitted Local Plan. A six week consultation will now take place until 5pm Friday 15 February 2019. Following your consideration of the additional evidence and information you are invited to make representations on the soundness of the plan, its legal compliance and conformity with duty to cooperate requirements.
The period for making representations closes at 5pm on Friday 15 February 2019.
If you would like to submit comments on whether the Local Plan is ‘sound', legal compliance and conformity with duty to cooperate requirements, in light of the additional evidence and information, please view the Development Plan Documents, the additional documents, the online representation form and guidance notes, see below.
Please note: It is not necessary to re-submit representations made at the formal publication stage (February-May 2018). All representations made at the formal publication have already been sent to the Inspector.
Following the close of this additional consultation valid representations will be forwarded to the Planning Inspector, Richard McCoy. The Inspector can then take account of comments received on the soundness of the submitted Local Plan documents. The local hearing sessions for the examination have a provisional start date of the week commencing 1 April 2019. More information on the Examination can be found here.
