What is the core strategy examination - Post-hearing proposed changes to DPD

Following the Core Strategy Hearings, the Inspector wrote to the Council proposing a limited number of ‘essential changes’, which it was felt were needed to address matters of soundness. The Council has considered these proposals and has, in response to the Inspector’s letter, set out its suggested changes, which it believes address the soundness issues raised. The Council has also proposed some additional changes, which it was asked to consider during the Hearings, that it believes are also matters of soundness. Where necessary, these changes (defined as ‘focused changes’) have been subject to Sustainability Appraisal and are now available for consultation for a period of six-weeks (from Monday 27 June to Sunday 7 August). Following the end of the consultation period, the Council will compile a Schedule of Representations, which will include its responses to any points made. This will then be forwarded to the Inspector. He will consider these in his final Report.

Representation on the Post-Submission & Post Hearings Schedule of Proposed Focused Changes, from those who submitted Representations on the Publication Core Strategy or who took part in the discussions at the Hearings, should be sent (by Sunday 7 August) to:

  • Address: Planning Policy Team, Bassetlaw District Council, Queen's Buildings, Potter Street, Worksop, Notts, S80 2AH
  • Email: future.plans@bassetlaw.gov.uk

A Post-Submission & Post Hearings Schedule of Proposed Minor Changes, has also been produced, for information, by the Council, in response to discussions at the Hearings. It also incorporates most of the minor changes submitted to the Inspector, with its Statements, by the Council. These were discussed at the Hearings and, being minor changes are not the subject of further Representation.
