The Plan will be examined by an independent examiner who will take the representations into account.
Normally the independent examination will be conducted by written representations. However, if it is considered necessary, the examiner may invite interested parties to a public hearing to present their comments. This might be necessary to examine an issue in more depth or to ensure fairness.
The independent examiner will only consider whether the proposed Neighbourhood Plan meets the basic conditions set out by law. The examiner will be considering whether the plan:
- has appropriate regard to national policy
- contributes to the achievement of sustainable development
- it is in general conformity with the strategic policies in the development plan for the local area
- is compatible with human rights requirements
- is compatible with EU obligations
Following the examination, the examiner will issue a report. If the plan meets the basic conditions the examiner will recommend the plan proceed to referendum stage, or may suggest further modifications are needed. The examiner may conclude that the plan does not meet the basic conditions and therefore would recommend it does not go to referendum.
