The Local Plan Part 1 public hearings will start at 10am on on the following dates:

  • Tuesday 27 June
  • Wednesday 28 June
  • Thursday 29 June
  • Tuesday 4 July
  • Wednesday 5 July
  • Thursday 6 July.

The hearings are open to the public and we expect demand for seats in the Council Chamber and overflow rooms (Committee Rooms 3 and 4 where the proceedings will be live streamed) will be great. Seats will be allocated on a strictly first come first served basis. The Examiner has decided that the hearings will not be broadcast on our website.

Access to the Council Chamber and overflow rooms is from 9.45am on each day of the hearing. You will be able to sign in at reception from 9.15am.

A documentation library will be available to those attending the hearing.

Security arrangements

Members of the public wishing to attend the hearings will be required to cooperate with the council’s security requirements while in the building. 

This will mean you will need to sign in and receive an identity badge and you may be subject to a security and bag check. To assist speedy registration, please limit your baggage and personal belongings. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

You will be required to wear the badge issued to you upon arrival at all times while you are in the council offices. 

Practical arrangements

  • Car parking is not available on site but Crown Court car park (pay and display) is a short walk away from the offices.
  • No recording, filming or photography of the proceedings will be permitted.
