West Sussex Joint Minerals Local Plan Modifications - Representations Period

Closed 9 Mar 2018

Opened 15 Jan 2018

Feedback Updated 26 Nov 2018

We Asked

Public examination hearings were held for the West Sussex Joint Minerals Local Plan in September 2017. During the hearings, discussions revealed a number of modifications to the Plan were likely to be necessary before the Planning Inspector could confirm the Plan as sound and legally compliant.  We published a schedule of proposed modifications, inviting formal representations on their soundness, in January 2018.

You Said

In total 36 organisations or individuals submitted a total of 123 representations on the proposed modifications. Following the representations period, the representations were submitted to the Planning Inspector for his review.  The inspector concluded that there were no further hearing sessions required once he had reviewed the representations. The Inspector issued his final report and a final schedule of modifications on 27 May 2018, confirming that, with the modifications, the Plan would be considered to be sound, and could be adopted.

We Did

The Joint Minerals Local Plan was formally adopted by the Authorities in July 2018, and now forms part of the Development Plan for West Sussex.  The Plan can be seen on the following webpages: www.westsussex.gov.uk/mwdf.
