Blackpool Local Plan Part 2: Site Allocations and Development Management Policies

Submission - 18 June 2021

On the 18 June 2021, the Local Plan Part 2 and its supporting documents were submitted for independent examination to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government via the Planning Inspectorate.

What happens next?

The Secretary of State has appointed Luke Fleming BSc (Hons) MRTPI to undertake an independent examination of the Local Plan Part 2 and to subsequently issue a report with his conclusions. 

His task is to establish whether the Local Plan Part 2 is 'sound', taking into consideration representations made during consultation on the Local Plan Part 2 Publication between February and April 2021. He will then report on his findings including advising if changes are needed to make the Local Plan Part 2 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 Local Plan Part 2 Examination webpage which will be updated frequently as the examination proceeds.
