    Plan consultation to start

    Friday 03 June 2016

    Consultation begins today - 3 June - on a series of modifications to the West Somerset Local Plan. The Plan, which provides the framework for future planning decisions in the area, is nearing adoption having been subject to public hearing sessions earlier in the year.

    Following six week consultation on the changes, the independently appointed planning inspector Brian Cook will issue his report into the ‘soundness’ of the Plan. 

    If the Inspector finds the plan sound and capable of adoption it is anticipated that West Somerset Council will formally adopt the Plan in August or September.

    The proposed changes can be viewed here www.westsomersetonline.gov.uk.  For further information please contact the Programme Officer Mrs Salla Arnold ProgrammeOfficer@westsomerset.gov.uk
