Next steps

The Independent Examiner will prepare a report on the Plan to determine whether it meets the Basic Conditions (the tests for a Neighbourhood Plan). 

The Independent Examiner's Report will be published on South Tyneside Council's website.

The Council will consider the recommendations from the Independent Examiner's Report.

When the Council makes a decision about the plan, it will publish a statement explaining the decision, and the reasons for making the decision.

It will also send a copy of the statement to the East Boldon Neighbourhood Forum, and any person who asked to be kept informed about the decision.
