Reg 17 Independent Examination (Final Report - 11 Sept 2023)

Mid Suffolk District Council appointed Ann Skippers BSc (Hons) MRTPI FHEA FRSA AoU to carry out an independent examination of the Beyton NDP. The examination included a two-week consultation on two matters, the first relating to the Special Landscape Area Appraisal, the other to minor discrepancies between some Local Green Spaces boundary maps.

On Monday 11 September 2023 the Examiner issued her final report. It recommends that subject to certain modifications this NDP meets the basic conditions and that it should proceed to a local referendum.

Planning Practice Guidance also provides advice on the weight to be attached to a post-examination plan.
