Revocation of Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS)

To all Respondents to the Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan:

The Secretary of State has announced the Government's decision to revoke the Regional Strategy for the South West and an Order is expected to be laid shortly. See Government announcement as follows:

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/new-step-for-localism-as-every-regional-plan-has-gone# 

If you consider that the revocation will have implications for the South Somerset Local Plan examination of which the Inspector should be aware, then please send your observations to the Programme Officer, Mrs Christine Self, by 16.00 on Thursday 2 May.   

The advice in Appendix B of the Inspector's Guidance Note, with regard to the format for Statements, will apply.

I appreciate that this will be quite rushed but I think it is better to have all the comments in before the hearings start, bearing in mind there may be debate on the matter under Issue 1.
