- Legal – have the relevant legal procedures been followed?
- Duty to Co-operate – has the Council liaised effectively with Neighbouring Authorities, infrastructure providers etc?
All comments made as part of this consultation will be submitted to the independent Planning Inspector for consideration as part of the examination.
