The NLWP Examination Hearings took place at The Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, London, NW1 1BD on Wednesday 20th November and Thursday 21st November. The Boroughs are working on main modifications to address the issues raised at the hearings by representors and the Inspector. Once the Inspector is satisfied with these, the Boroughs will consult formally on the main modifications.
In February 2020 the Boroughs wrote to the Inspector to inform him that the consultation on the main modifications would start after the local elections in early May. Since this time, the elections have been postponed for a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Boroughs agreed not to start any consultation on modifications to the NLWP until both council staff and consultees are able to fully participate in the consultation process. Government guidance to stay at home is changing and lockdown is now being eased, however the Boroughs are mindful that some people may still need to shield or quarantine for a period of time.
The Boroughs anticipate consulting on the Main Modifications in September 2020 and further details will be sent to all participants in due course. Please note that this time frame could be amended if government guidance changes.
