Rayleigh Centre Area Action Plan Adopted 20 October 2015
The Rayleigh Area Action Plan Submission Document (December 2014) was submitted to the Government for independent examination on 5 December 2014 alongside a number of supporting documents.
The Programme Officer for the examination was Kay Tinson.
Following submission the Planning Inspector provided his preliminary observations to the Council, and asked for clarification regarding some issues and made several suggestions on how the Council should proceed.
The Inspector observed that the changes in the Rayleigh Area Action Plan Submission Document (December 2014) suggested by the Council constitute main modifications to the Plan rather than additional modifications. As such the Inspector suggested that it would be more appropriate from a procedural point of view to carry out the examination based on the original Pre-Submission Document published in November 2013.
A hearing session took place on 4 March 2015. Following this hearing session for the Pre-Submission Document (November 2013), the Inspector provided his interim views on the soundness of the plan (see table below, ref. RCAAP014). The Council considered the Inspector’s interim views and produced a consolidated list of modifications to the Pre-Submission Document (November 2013). The Schedule of Modifications and accompanying Sustainability Appraisal were consulted on between 27 April and 22 June 2015 and are available to download below:
