Local Plan update – June 2016

We have received the following update from Canterbury City council

Following the consultation by Canterbury City Council on possible amendments to the Local Plan relating to the five-year housing land supply and the further work that the Council has undertaken at the request of the Inspector, he has decided to progress his examination of the Plan. Accordingly, the Stage 2 hearings have been programmed.
See this link https://www.canterbury.gov.uk/planning/local-plan/emerging-local-plan/local-plan-latest-news/ for an updated list of the Inspector’s Matters, Issues and Questions for Stage 2 (dated 16 May 2016), a draft Programme for the further hearings (including names of attendees) and the Inspector’s Additional Guidance Notes for Stage 2. The latter should be read alongside the initial Guidance Notes issued at Stage 1.
Please note that the Additional Guidance Notes provide the deadlines for submission of any further statements, which should be limited to the Stage 2 Matters, Issues and Questions.
