Latest compilation figures from the CPBC Local Plan 2016 reveal the level of support for the latest version of the Plan to have reached record levels!
Previously our local authority used the numbers of residents NOT responding to the withdrawn Core Strategy, as support for that version of the Plan.
The Core Strategy Non-Responders totalled in the region of 80%, CPBC suggested / claimed that as these residents had failed to respond, then they must be in support of the Core Strategy.
Following many years of soul searching and hand wringing, the CPBC local authority have come up with the latest version of the Plan Mk III or Local Plan2016.
The important Non Responders this time reached somewhere near the high 90%, allowing CPBC to claim, if they so wish, an even more emphatic level of support for their Local Plan 2016!All will be revealed during tomorrow nights CPBC Cabinet meeting!
Let’s hope the Examining Inspector is equally impressed!
