Update to the SWDP Review Timetable
Further to the adoption of the Local Development Scheme 2020-23 by each of the three South Worcestershire Councils at the end of September, the SWDP Review timetable has been formally updated. The update to the timetable to push back the Publication Consultation (Regulation 19) and subsequent stages of the process to later than originally planned is in response to issues with evidence collation arising from the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The new SWDP Review timetable is as follows:
Additional Focused Consultation (Regulation 18) – March-April 2021
Publication Consultation (Regulation 19) – November-December 2021
Submission (Regulation 22) – March 2022
Independent Examination (Regulation 24) – May 2022-January 2023
Receipt of Inspector’s Report (Regulation 25) – March 2023
Adoption (Regulation 26) – April 2023
The Local Development Scheme 2020-23 can be accessed on the SWDP website using the following link –https://www.wychavon.gov.uk/south-worcestershire-development-plan/publications/local-development-scheme.
New SWDP Website
There is a new SWDP website which has now gone live, replacing the existing SWDP website which was hosted externally on WordPress. The new SWDP website can be accessed using the following link – https://www.wychavon.gov.uk/south-worcestershire-development-plan, with all links to the previous website (www.swdevelopmentplan.org) now automatically redirecting to the new website.
We hope you find the new SWDP website more user friendly and easier to navigate, but if there are any issues please do not hesitate to contact a member of the SWDP team.
