On 26 May 2017, the West Sussex Joint Minerals Local Plan (prepared by the County Council and the South Downs National Park Authority) was submitted to the Government.
Mr Jonathan Manning, an independent Planning Inspector, has been appointed to conduct an Examination-in-Public (EiP) to determine whether the Plan is ‘sound’ and ‘legally complaint’.
The Planning Inspector has now issued his ‘Matters and Issues’ and confirmed that the EiP public hearings will begin on Tuesday, 19 September 2017 and run for two weeks (Tuesdays to Thursdays).
The hearings will be held at Edes House, Chichester. A public examination webpage has been set up that contains further information about the EiP. All relevant documents, including the Matters and Issues and the draft hearing programme, are held in the Examination Document Library.
Subject to the outcomes of the EiP, it is anticipated that the Plan will be adopted in May 2018.
