Lichfield Local Plan Review - Publication version (Regulation 19)*
1.1 Agreed to the publication of the Local Plan 2040 publication document and accompanying policy maps for the purposes of public consultation with dates for public consultation yet to be decided due to current restrictions around Covid-19 and submission for Examination in Public thereafter. Consultation would take place as soon as is practicably possible in the spring, taking into account ongoing restrictions due to Covid-19.
1.2 Delegated authority to the Cabinet Member for Visitor Economy & Local Plan in consultation with the Head of Economic Growth and Development to agree the dates and strategy for the consultation having regard to national regulations and the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI), make any changes to the appearance, format and text of the Local Plan 2040 publication document or the supporting documents prior to consultation in the interests of clarity and accuracy.
1.3 Noted that the Local Plan 2040 publication document would be brought back before Cabinet if future evidence indicated the need for significant changes to the Local Plan 2040 publication document for further detailed consideration. It may also be necessary to return to Cabinet should the Covid-19 pandemic continue longer than expected and this had a substantial impact upon the gathering of the final elements of the evidence base.
