Comments received as part of this consultation process will be summarised and reported to the Council along with an officer response and recommendation. The Core Strategy will then be amended, where appropriate, in the light of those comments and other relevant evidence and published for formal consultation (Publication[1]) for a period of at least 6 weeks. Comments received will be summarised for submission to the Planning Inspector appointed to undertake the formal Examination of the Core Strategy. The Examination is held into the published plan and those comments received considered by the Inspector[2]. Upon receipt of the Inspector's Report the Core Strategy can be formally adopted. The Core Strategy Process diagram overleaf illustrates these stages. The timescale for the remainder of the process will be set out in a revised Local Development Scheme.
