The Waverley Borough Local Plan Part 1: Strategic Policies and Sites is now being independently examined by the Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State. This is a continuous process running from the date of submission through to the receipt of the Planning Inspector’s Report. Part of this process will involve hearing sessions where those invited to attend will have the opportunity to respond to matters raised by the Planning Inspector. Once confirmed, all details relating to the examination process will be advertised, including online on this page of the website.

We have been advised by the Planning Inspectorate that Jonathan Bore has been appinted to determine whether the Local Plan is sound. To help assist the examination of documents, the Council has appointed Mrs Claire Jones-Hughes of Banks Solutions to act as an independent Programme Officer. The precise date for the opening of any formal hearing part of the examination into the Local Plan will be decided by the Inspector. Further details, once advised, will be made available on here on the Local Plan page of the Council's website.
