What is the core strategy examination - Planning for growth

On 23 March 2011 Greg Clark, Minister of State for Decentralisation, made a Written Ministerial Statement, “Planning for Growth”, which sets out the Government’s commitment to reforming the planning system so that it promotes sustainable development needed to support economic growth and jobs.

Economic considerations are likely to be an issue to a greater or lesser extent in most, if not all, local plans. Ministers expect the ‘Planning for Growth’ agenda to be implemented immediately, and give a high priority and significant weight to the reform of the planning system to promote sustainable economic growth and jobs. Views are being sought on the implications of this policy development for all local plans that are currently being examined, irrespective of the stage reached, and therefore written representations relating specifically to the ‘Planning for Growth’ and other Budget statements are being invited.

Given this context, the inspector has requested that the Council advise anyone who made representations on the Submission draft Core Strategy & Development Management Policies DPD, and who wishes to comment on the ministerial statement in terms of its relevance to the Inspector’s consideration of the DPD, to please send your comments, by Wednesday 27th April either by email to programme.officer@bassetlaw.gov.uk or by post to the Programme Officer.

The Council will be given the opportunity to comment on representations and any statement from them should be made by Friday 6 May. Representations will be taken into account by the inspector and discussed at the relevant hearing sessions.
