SOLIHULL’S Local Plan has been handed to Secretary of State for closer inspection.
An Independent Planning Inspector will be appointed to undertake the examination and this will include a series of hearings, called an Examination in Public.
At the conclusion of the examination the Inspector will issue their final report which then allows the Council to adopt the plan if it is found to be sound and legally compliant.
Adoption of the plan is by resolution from Full Council.
It is likely that an Inspector will be appointed by mid-June and that the hearings will take place later in the year.
