Local Plans: letter from the Secretary of State to the Chief Executive of the Planning Inspectorate

Published By GOV.UK [English], Fri, Aug 5, 2022 7:00 AM

During this short period of transition, before a new Prime Minister takes Office, inspectors should not send letters or reports which conclude that local plans are unsound and incapable of being made so and/or which advise councils that local plans should be withdrawn.

The Secretary of State also urges Inspectors to continue to address any local plan shortcomings in correspondence with councils in a constructive and positive way.
