Conclusion Of Local Plan Stage 1 Hearings

Local Plan Hearings

The stage 1 hearing for the local plan concluded on Friday. SLCL provided comment on 4 out of the 5 days. (Monday morning, Tuesday afternoon, Thursday afternoon and Friday morning). Our aim was to cast as much doubt as possible in the minds of the Inspectors regarding the suitability of Long Copse Lane for the development that has been proposed. We would like to thank all those who spoke in support of LCL.

The Friday morning session was the one on which LCL received the greatest attention. The hearing were all recorded and can be found here.

The Friday morning discussion on LCL starts after 55 minutes.

The Inspectors are expected to publish their interim findings towards the end of the summer. No firm date has yet been given. We await these conclusions with great interest.
