A PLAN which sets out development proposals for Hartlepool for the next 15 years is to be examined by a Government-approved inspector at the end of this month.

The Local Plan has been prepared by Hartlepool Council following consultation and includes details about the town’s future aspirations for development – and what kind of changes will be needed to achieve these, and how they will come about.

The planning inspector will check the Local Plan is sound and complies with all legal requirements.

The Hartlepool Local Plan Examination will be carried out by Government Planning Inspector Kevin Ward and will take place on weekdays from Tuesday, January 29 to Friday, February 8.

It will be held in the Conference Facility in Hartlepool College of Further Education in Stockton Street and members of the public are welcome to watch the proceedings. There will be two sessions per day, starting at 10am and 2pm.

The Planning Inspector will publish his findings in spring this year. Subject to Government approval, the proposed Local Plan would then be put before the Full Council for approval and adoption later next year.
