4. Submission and Examination

On 9th October 2017 Colchester Borough Council, along with Braintree and Tendring District Councils, submitted their Local Plans and accompanying documents to the Planning Inspectorate.

The coordinated submission reflects the fact that the three Local Plans share a common Section 1 including strategic cross-boundary policies and allocations. Section 1 will be considered through a joint examination. All information for this examination will be held centrally on the Braintree District Council website here.

Section 2 of the Local Plan containing Colchester specific policies and allocations will be considered through a later separate examination.

Colchester Borough Council has collated all the representations received in response to the Publication Draft consultation period which ran from 16th June - 11th August 2017.  In accordance with Regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012, all of the representations received from that consultation were considered and summarised and along with a range of evidence base and supporting documents were sent to the Planning Inspectorate on 9th October.

Andrea Copsey has been appointed as the independent Programme Officer to support the examination process for both sections of the plan.  The Programme Officer can be contacted on 07842 643988, or by email copseyandrea@gmail.com, or via post at Longcroft Cottage, Bentley Road, Weeley Heath, Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, CO16 9BX.

The Braintree District Council website (see link above) contains a full list of documents submitted jointly in support of Section 1. The following lists include all the documents submitted by Colchester Borough Council in support of both Section 1 and Section 2 of its Local Plan.
