Proposed changes to Core Strategy Publication Document
The preparation of the Core Strategy Publication Document has evolved through various stages. Throughout all the stages of the Core Strategy process, the Council has been concerned to ensure that public involvement is central and has valued and taken into account comments received at each consultation stage. The Core Strategy Publication Document, the Sustainability Appraisal Report and the Proposals Map were published for consultation between 25 July 2011 and 23 September 2011.
Overall, about 350 representations were received from 87 individuals, residents groups and organisations. The Council considered the representations at its meeting on 8 December 2011 and proposes to make the changes set out in the attached document for the Inspector to consider as part of the Independent Examination. Also attached are a few minor changes that that Council wish to make to enhance the quality of the Core Strategy Publication Document.
