South Somerset Local Plan 2006-2028 Project Management Board Reports

The District Council undertook a public consultation in June - August 2012 on the Proposed Submission Local Plan, formerly the Core Strategy. Since that time the Planning Policy Team has been considering representations made and presenting this information to the Local Development Framework Project Management Board ((LDF PMB). The LDF PMB is a steering group of Members/Officers set up by the Council's District Executive (the Council's executive committee) to oversee the development of the Council's Local Plan. It is not a decision making body however it has been considering representations made on the Local Plan, emerging new evidence and changing Government policy.

The Board's Agendas, Minutes and Reports should not be considered to form Council policy but present the information and evidence supporting their recommendations to the District Executive. As such it is appropriate that there is public access to these to help to understand the recommendations of District Executive on the Local Plan 2006 - 2028 and ultimately the resolutions of Full Council on the matter.
