Supporting Documents 


It is the responsibility of the District Council to collate all the representations made and pass these on to the independent examiner, who will examine the plan documents and assess whether the plan is in line with legislation and can therefore proceed to a public referendum. An examiner will be appointed to undertake the examination in the forthcoming weeks.
