Latest news 19 June 2013: Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan
The Hampshire Authorities have now received the Inspector's Report from the Planning Inspectorate on the soundness of the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan. This follows the public examination of the Plan, which included public hearings in June 2012 and March 2013.
The Inspector has concluded that with the main modifications set out in his report that the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan satisfies the requirements of Section 20(5) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, as amended, and the associated Regulations, and meets the tests of soundness set out in the National Planning Policy Framework.
The Hampshire Authorities intend to incorporate the recommendations of the Inspector's Report and amend the Plan accordingly. This will make the Plan sound and suitable for adoption.
The Hampshire Authorities will now begin the democratic process required to adopt the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan. Adoption, subject to agreement by all of the Hampshire Authorities is anticipated in Autumn 2013.
