Couple of updates this week on the Local Plan situation.
The new timetable for the Dorset Local Plan Review is to be considered by the newly formed Cabinet at its meeting at the end of June (as announced by David Walsh - pictured - who has taken on the Cabinet role for Planning). This should clarify whether the East, North and West Dorset's separate plan reviews are to be abandoned in order to focus on the combined plan.
Purbeck's Local Plan examination is moving forward, with the issues and Inspector's questions now published and two hearing sessions set for early July then early August. Inspector Beverley Doward has raised about 150 questions to be answered - so it is understandable why she is setting a strict word limit on written responses! Deadline for further submissions is set at 5pm on Friday 7 June 2019.
