Other reasons / organisations consulted

Statutory consultation has been undertaken at various stages throughout the preparation of the GMJWDPD, including through the statutory Examination in Public, in line with the Council’s adopted Scheme of Community Involvement (SCI).  The published GMJWDPD was formally approved by the Council in September 2010 prior to the Examination in Public.


Representations had to be made through the statutory plan making processes (including the Examination in Public).  The plan making regulations do not afford any scope for further representations to be taken into account outside of that process.
