Core Strategy Examination
The Core Strategy is currently subject to Examination by an Independent Inspector, who will assess the soundness of the document. Further details about the Examination, including the Programme Officer and Inspector details, can be viewed on the Core Strategy Examination page.
Subject to a few outstanding matters (see below), the examination into the other "Matters and Issues" identified by the Inspector has been completed (20 - 30 September 2011).
The examination has been suspended to allow the Council to address the following three topics, as set out in the Inspector's Ruling:
(i) The strategic approach to Green Belt releases;
(ii) The scale of housing and employment development proposed for Tadcaster and the implications for the Green Belt;
(iii) The overall scale of housing development over the plan period.
The Council has carried out a consultation directly with participants on the changes to the Core Strategy arising from its consideration of these three topics. This has taken place in accordance with the revised timetable submitted to the examination on 30 September. For further details see the Core Strategy EIP webpage.
The consultation closed on the 15 February 2012.
The examination will resume on the 18th April for two days to focus on the three topics set out in the Inspector's Ruling, as set out above. The Inspector has issued a note which sets out arrangements for the April hearing sessions and outlines the subsequent process, as well as a Hearing Sessions Draft Programme. Both can be viewed on the Core Strategy EIP page.
