WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Once the consultation has ended, all responses will be considered by the Steering Group and responded to. Your comments may result in the plan being improved.
Once all comments have been considered and any amendments made, the plan will be submitted to Dorset Council who will then carry out a six-week consultation. This is likely to be in May 2024.
An examiner will then be appointed to ensure the plan meets the basic conditions and the relevant legal requirements. The plan may be amended as a result of the examiner’s report.
Once the plan has been examined, there will be a referendum where you can choose whether you want to adopt the plan or not. It’s your neighbourhood, it’s your plan.
