The Secretary of State has appointed Will Fieldhouse BA (Hons) MA MRTPI as Planning Inspector to carry out an independent examination of the Broxbourne Local Plan 2018-2033.
The relevant soundness criteria are whether the Local Plan/District Plan is:
- Positively prepared: based on a strategy that seeks to meet objectively assessed development and infrastructure requirements, including unmet requirements from neighbouring authorities where it is reasonable to do so and consistent with achieving sustainable development;
- Justified: the most appropriate strategy when considered against the reasonable alternatives, based on proportionate evidence;
- Effective: the plan should be deliverable over its period and based on effective joint working on cross-boundary strategic priorities; and
- Consistent with national policy: the plan should enable the delivery of sustainable development in accordance with the policies in the Framework.
