Examination of the Sedlescombe Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan and supporting documents, together with the representations, have been forwarded to the Examiner (see letter dated 9-3-17 under Related Documents).

If the independent examiner considers it necessary to ensure adequate examination of an issue or to give a person a fair chance to put a case, he will hold a hearing to listen to oral representations about a particular issue. If the Examiner considers that an oral hearing is appropriate, interested parties will be notified about the process in due course.

Further details of the Examination will follow shortly.
