During this period comments are invited on the ‘soundness’ of the plan and whether the correct legal processes have been followed. To be sound policies should be positively prepared, justified, effective and consistent with national policy.
Comments are also sought on the Sustainability Appraisal and the Habitats Regulations Assessment reports, which have been published alongside the MWLP and its evidence base documents.
The consultation documents & evidence used to support the development of the MWLP, and details of how to take part will be available on the Minerals and Waste Local Plan webpage .
