The Proposed Submission Local Plan must be considered by a formal Independent Examination. This is led by an independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government. The name of the appointed Planning Inspector, details of hearing sessions and the Inspector’s issues will be shared once confirmed.
OPDC has appointed Charlotte Glancy, of Banks Solutions to act as the Programme Officer for the OPDC Local Plan.
The Programme Officer deals with procedural, administrative and programming matters for the Independent Examination. They should be the first point of contact for any person or organisation that has fed into the previous public consultations and will liaise between OPDC, the Planning Inspector and participants taking part in the hearings.
Correspondence or queries relating to the examination process can be directed to the Programme Officer in the following way:
- Write: c/o Banks Solutions, 80 Lavinia Way, East Preston, West Sussex, BN16 1DD
- Via email
- Over the phone: 07519 628064 or 01903 776601
