Blackpool Local Plan part 1: Core strategy

Submission - 19 December 2014

On the 19 December 2014, the Local Plan and its supporting documents were submitted for independent examination to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government via the Planning Inspectorate.

What happens next?

The Secretary of State has appointed Malcolm Rivett BA (Hons) MSc MRTPI as the Inspector from the Planning Inspectorate to carry out an independent examination of the Core Strategy. His task is to establish whether the Core Strategy is 'sound', taking into consideration representations made during consultation on the Proposed Submission Core Strategy between July and August 2014. He will then report on his findings including advising if changes are needed to make the Core Strategy sound.

To assist the Inspector, a Programme Officer, Tony Blackburn has also been appointed. All correspondence relating to the examination should be via the Programme Officer. 

 

Further information will be available on our Examination webpage, which will be updated frequently as the examination proceeds.
