As we went to print with our Newsletter, the Council Officers are reviewing the new sites and new timetable. The 66 entirely new sites and 77 re-promoted new sites that were submitted far exceeded expectations, which means that it is not possible to conclude the intended consultation stage before pre-elections start on 26 March 2019. This will result in a short delay to the agreed timetable, such that presentation of results and recommendations to members could take place in September 2019 and examination hearing sessions could take place in December 2019.
The Council has also received a letter from the Inspector asking them to consider a quicker timetable than the one they originally submitted to him.
