Results updated 17 Oct 2012

The Inspector who examined the Core Strategy considered the responses to the consultation in reaching his conclusions. He found the Core Strategy to be sound subject to the inclusion of the Significant Changes - this is set out in his report. The Core Strategy was adopted by the Council in June 2011.

Overview

The City Council is preparing its Core Strategy. This is a Development Plan which outlines the approach to planning for the new housing, shops and workplaces to be built over the next twenty years. During the summer a Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State held a number of public examination hearings into the ‘soundness’ of the Core Strategy. As a result of these discussions the council published potential changes to the Core Strategy in December 2010, which provided the opportunity for representations to be made on the changes that arose from the examination hearings. Consultation on the changes has now closed.

Why we are consulting

The role of the ‘Core Strategy - Schedules of Potential Significant Changes’ is to provide the opportunity for representations to be made on the changes that arose from the examination hearings.All representations received will be considered by the inspector appointed to carry out the examination into the soundness of the Core Strategy.

What happens next

Representations received have been passed to the Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State to carry out the examination. The Inspector may wish to hold a further hearing session to discuss the representations received. If found ‘sound’ by the Inspector the Core Strategy will be adopted by the council; this is currently anticipated to be in May 2011.

More information on the Core Strategy including the changes can be found on the council's Bristol Development Framework web site. http://www.bristol.gov.uk/bdf
