What are the next steps?

After the consultation closes, we will consider all representations. 

These will inform the next version of the Plan - the 'Publication Draft' - which itself will be consulted upon. 

From there, any representations received will be considered and the Publication Draft Local Plan (together with any proposed changes) and all supporting information will be submitted to the Secretary of State. 

An Inspector will be appointed who will then hold an independent examination of the Local Plan.

Who will make the final decision on South Tyneside's Local Plan?

The final decision on the Local Plan and the development it proposes will be made by an independent Planning Inspector, appointed by the Government, following the examination, likely to be held in mid- 2021.  

The Council will then need to make the formal decision to adopt the Local Plan.
