Locl Plan Inspector appointed   ()



28th June, 2017



Dear Representor, 


North Hertfordshire District Council Local Plan (2011-2031)

Public Examination 



As a respondent to the consultation on the pre-submission draft of the

North Hertfordshire Local  Plan, I am writing to advise you that

the Secretary of State  has  appointed  Inspector Simon Berkeley BA MA MRTPI  

to carry out the independent examination of the plan.    

He will determine whether it has  been prepared in accordance with the

relevant legal requirements and that it is ‘sound’   i.e. positively prepared, j

ustified, effective and consistent with national policy. 



I have been appointed as the independent Programme Officer to assist the Inspector

with all aspects of the examination and my contact details are set out above.  

Prior to the hearing sessions of the examination, the Inspector does not have

direct contact with either the Council or Representors, and all communications

with the Inspector take place through the Programme Officer. 



The Inspector is currently appraising the Local Plan and I will be in contact again

when I am able to give you further information on the examination process

and key dates.  As there are a large number of representations this is not likely to

be for a couple of months, but information on the examination is kept up to date

on the Council  webpages.  The  easiest way to keep in touch with the progress

of the examination is to click on the link  below and scroll down to the tab  

entitled ‘Latest News and Updates’. 








If you  would prefer not to receive any further information on the examination,  

please let me know and I will remove your details from the notification list.



I am your point of contact throughout the examination process, and if you have

any queries at any stage of the examination please do not hesitate to contact me

and I will be happy to help.





Yours sincerely


Louise St John Howe
