The North Essex Authorities have undertaken a Technical Consultation on the Additional Sustainability Appraisal, additional evidence base documents and the suggested amendments to Section 1. The Consultation ran until 5pm on Monday 30th September 2019. All the comments received have been uploaded and can be read on the portal, and have been forwarded to the Inspector for his consideration. 

The Inspector produced an Explanatory Note (IED016) to accompany the consultation. The Explanatory Note sets out the context for the consultation and explains the next steps that are expected to occur in the examination.

The North Essex Authorities wrote to the Inspector on 8 October 2019 ref: NEA015 about the arrangements for the further hearing sessions.  The Inspector replied on 21 October 2019 ref: IED017.

Braintree District Council, Colchester Borough Council and Tendring District Council have been working together on the strategic cross boundary issues for North Essex. This has resulted in a strategic section 1 which is shared by all three local planning authorities within their Local Plans. The section 1 includes policies on strategic cross boundary issues including infrastructure and housing numbers and includes proposals for three new Garden Communities.

The Section 1 Local Plan is currently subject to a joint examination by an inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. 

Further correspondence can be viewed at: Examination Documents - Correspondence and Notifications

The evidence base to support the section 1 Local Plan is made up of jointly produced documents and documents related to individual local planning authorities.

Please note: Information on the section 2 examinations, which will consider individual local authority policies and allocations and will take place after the joint section 1 examination, can be found on the individual local authority websites.
