Information about the Examination

The Examiner has written to the Council and Tiptree Parish Council to seek some initial points of clarification, in his letter dated 1 November. Both the Council and Tiptree Parish Council have responded to the Examiner. The Examiners Letter, Responses and supporting attachments are available to view below:

Following the closure of the recent planning inquiry at Brook Meadows, the appellant (Kler Group) has asked the Examiner to consider additional information as part of the Neighbourhood Plan Examination, which has arisen during the course of the planning inquiry. While the Examiner does not wish to routinely engage in additional, unsolicited submissions, on this occasion he has accepted the additional information. The Qualifying Body (Tiptree Parish Council) have been given the opportunity to respond and this has been published below. Thereafter, the Examiner will review all of the available evidence and how it may affect the ongoing Examination. He does not anticipate the need for any further submissions.
