The North London Waste Plan (NLWP) has been examined by an independent Planning Inspector, Mr Stephen Normington BSc DipTP MRICS MRTPI FIQ FIHE, whose role is to assess whether the plan complies with the legal requirements and is sound. The Inspector has taken into account any representations made in response to the NLWP consultations.
Following the NLWP hearing sessions in November 2019 the North London Boroughs consulted on Main Modifications to the NLWP. These modifications were approved by each Borough. Documents related to this consultation are available under Main Modification Consultation Documents below. A small number of additional modifications were made to reflect changes to the NPPF. The Schedule of Modifications and NLWP have been updated accordingly.
The Inspector has now issued his final Report which concludes that the Duty to Cooperate has been met and that, with the recommended main modifications set out in the Schedule of Main Modifications, the North London Waste Plan satisfies the requirements referred to in Section 20(5)(a) of the 2004 Act and is sound. In line with the The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012, the Boroughs have published the Report as soon as is reasonably practicable.
This brings the Examination to a close. The North London Boroughs would like to thank everyone who has participated in the North London Waste Plan examination process.
The next stage is for the NLWP to be taken to Borough Cabinet and Council meetings for approval.
All Examination documents are provided below alongside a full list of Core Documents with links.
