Southampton City Council: Just a quick update following our recent post on the hearing sessions of the joint Examination into  the City Centre Action Plan (CCAP) and Core Strategy Partial Review.

The hearing sessions have closed and the Inspector Christine Downes has recommended a number of modifications which Southampton City Council have been instructed to consult on. This post-hearing modifications consultation procedure seems to becoming the norm. The Council have to go away and formally consult the public on the proposed modifications and then report the results directly back to the Inspector. The Inspector at this stage has more or less made up their mind about the soundness of the plan but will need to take into account any representations on the modifications. In this case the further consultation stage is anticipated to be early June.
