Submission and Independent Examination

Page updated on: 07/12/2018

The Planning Inspectorate (on behalf of the Welsh Government) in examining the LDP, will consider the deposit representations, the deposit plan and the final sustainability appraisal report. The aim of the examination is to ensure that the plan is “sound”, and that the views of all those who have commented have been considered.

The tests of “soundness” fall into three categories: procedural, consistency and coherence/effectiveness. Part of the examination process is held in public, with all objectors having the right to appear and be heard.
