The council submitted the Proposed Submission City Plan Part 2 together with the supporting documents, to the Secretary of State for examination, in accordance with Regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.

The formal notice of submission sets out where the Proposed Submission City Plan Part 2 and supporting documents are available to view. You can find the formal notice of submission (SD15) with the rest of the submission documents.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions we cannot, at this time, make printed copies of submission documents available to view at the customer service points or any of the city libraries. However, this will be done as soon as circumstances allow. This is explained in more detail in the formal notice.

Programme Officer

The council has appointed a Programme Officer for the examination.

The Programme Officer is independent from the council and reports directly to the Inspector.

The Programme Officer is responsible for the day-to-day organisation of the examination and will act as a channel of communication between the Inspector and all parties, including the council officers and representors.

All correspondence or queries relating to the examination should be directed to the Programme Officer.
