Potential delays to Central Bedfordshire’s Local Plan Examination
On the 09/08/18 Inspector Hayden BSc (Hons) DiPTP MRTPI wrote to Central Bedfordshire Council (CBC) with several questions and requests for further information.
Following the Council’s response, the Inspector issued another letter on 12/09/18. First of all, the Inspector is seeking for greater clarity and calling for transparency. His letter also requests additional evidence to be received prior to the examination hearings commencing. Subsequently CBC has been tasked with providing a timetable for the completion of the requested evidence. Once this information is received, the Inspector will be able to provide an indicative timeframe for the public hearings.
It is anticipated, given the wealth of information requested, this is likely to cause a significant delay to the examination proceedings.
