Date set for Local Plan inquiry

The public inquiry examining the content of Knowsley's proposed Local Plan, which sets out how the borough will be developed over the next 15 years, will take place in November.

The Core Strategy part of the plan was formally submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government, Eric Pickles, in July, and the next part of the process is the Examination in Public, which all Local Plans are subject to.

An independent Planning Inspector, Martin Pike BA MA MRTPI, has been appointed to oversee this process.

The public hearings will begin on Tuesday 5 November at the Gallery, Huyton Suite, Civic Way, Huyton, L36 9GD. A pre-hearing meeting will take place at the same venue on Thursday 26 September at 2pm.
