The consultation on the Publication (Pre-Submission) version of the Winchester District Local Plan Part 2: Development Management and Site Allocations has now closed (the consultation was taken off-line at noon on 21 December 2015).

The Council will now summarise the main issues raised and submit the Plan for examination by an independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State. The Council will also send the representations it has received during the consultation to the Inspector, together with a number of supporting documents.  At the examination, the Inspector will assess whether the Plan meets the relevant legal requirements, complies with the Duty to Cooperate, and is sound. The examination will include hearing sessions where interested parties may be invited by the Inspector to discuss the Plan.

After the hearings, the Inspector will produce a report setting out their findings and recommendations. The Council may publish modifications to the Plan before this and there will be consultations on these.

If the Inspector finds the Plan to be sound and legally compliant, with or without modifications, the Council will proceed to adopt the Plan.

The expected programme for the key stages is;

- Submission of the Plan to the Secretary of State for examination – March 2016
- Examination  - March – September 2016 (Hearings expected June/July)
- Inspector’s  Report – November 2016
- Adoption and publication of LPP2 – December 2016
