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 consultation on the main modifications would start after the local elections in early May 2020. Since this time, the elections have been postponed for a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Government guidance is to stay at home and to minimise the spread of the virus by avoiding social contact. During these extraordinary times, the Boroughs will not start any consultation on modifications to the NLWP until both council staff and consultees are better able to prepare and participate in the consultation process. We will provide updates as further guidance from the government is issued.
