Following the examination into the soundness of the Part 2 Local Plan, undertaken during 2019, the Council on 23 June 2020 received the Inspectors Report into the Examination of the South Northamptonshire Local Plan Part 2. The Inspector concluded that subject to the recommended main modifications set out in the Appendix to their report, the Local Plan satisfies the requirements of Section 20(5) of the 2004 Act and meets the criteria for soundness in the National Planning Policy Framework. The report and appendices are available below.
As current restrictions associated with the Covid-19 pandemic remain in effect, it is not possible for the Council to deposit at its offices or elsewhere hard copies of the Inspectors’ report. In light of these circumstances, the Council has adopted additional measures to address the consequences of this unavoidable situation and make sure local people continue to be made aware of the progress of the local plan process and have access to documents associated with it. See the above link to look at these measures.
