The East of England LGA continues to give evidence at the London Plan Examination in Public

2nd April 2019

The East of England LGA continues to give evidence at the London Plan Examination in Public (EiP) which started in January 2019 and runs until May.

The Association, through the politically-led and cross-party Infrastructure and Growth Group and East of England Strategic Planning Officers Liaison Group (EE SSPOLG) has been working to provide 8 verbal and written representations, emphasising key points from our consultation response here. East of England officers have participated in several sessions so far covering London’s housing growth and implications for the Wider South East. Officers will be participating in the upcoming and final sessions on the topics of waste and circular economy, transport schemes and development, and monitoring.

The Panel of Inspectors is hearing from a range of groups including local authorities, developers and the voluntary and community sector, and is expected to report over the summer. The Panel’s written report will set out its findings in relation to the EIP matters and may include recommendations relating to the content of the draft London Plan published in December 2017 or associated matters. Once the Mayor of London has considered their report, the Plan will take its statutory course through to the publication of the final Plan in early 2020.
