An examiner will be allocated and the strategy will then be inspected. Examination hearings are expected by High Peak Borough Council to happen in November or December 2014, and anticipate that the plan will then be adopted in February 2015.
The Draft Local Plan was published on 23 April 2014 for a public consultation that ended on 23 June 2014. A list of minor modifications was then published in July 2014 prior to the submission of the Local Plan.
An Inspector had been appointed but before hearing sessions were to take place High Peak District Council published a Schedule of Suggested Main Modifications on 22 December 2014 for consideration.
The first hearing sessions were held between 13 January 2015 and 5 February 2015. The Council then went away to prepare additional work on housing land supply and other evidence documents. A additional hearing day was then held on 3 September 2015.
High Peak District Council are now consulting on their Main Modifications to their Local Plan between 10 December 2015 and 28 January 2016.
