The Plymouth and South West Devon Joint Local Plan – Hearing Details

The Joint Local Plan examination hearings start at the end of this month and we can now confirm the dates/venues for each session. If there are any changes to these details we will let you know as soon as possible.

Only those who made representations during the final consultation on the Joint Local Plan have a right to participate but the sessions are open for anyone to come along and watch, including those supporting the Plan!

Hearing Statements

In preparation for the hearings, on 10 November we received the Inspectors' Matters Issues and Questions (EXC7). The three Joint Local Plan Councils and other participants have now sent their replies to the Planning Inspectors. These are available to view on our examination web page under ‘Examination Hearing Statements.’
