Hard copies of the submission documents (other than copies of the representations and the other supporting information) will be available for inspection at the following local libraries:

All those who have made representations on the Plan, or have otherwise asked to be kept informed, have been notified of the submission.

The Local Plan will now be subject to independent examination by an Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State.  Inspector Karen Baker (DipTP, MA,  DipMP, MRTPI) has been appointed to conduct the examination.

All communication to and from the Inspector during the examination process will be managed by the independent Programme Officer.

Once confirmed, all details relating to the examination process will be made available on Amber Valley Borough Council’s website.
