Representations received to the submitted Wareham Neighbourhood Plan

Consultation on the submitted plan
The Wareham Neighbourhood Plan was originally submitted to Purbeck District Council (now Dorset Council) in October 2018. The plan was withdrawn due to issues raised at the examination.
The Wareham Neighbourhood Plan has since been amended and consultation has taken place in respect of the submission version of the new Wareham Neighbourhood Plan.
As the local planning authority, the council is required to consult on the plan proposals before the examination takes place. The consultation took place from Friday 18 December 2020 to Friday 12 February 2021. It provided an opportunity for individuals and organisations to make any comments they have about the plan with regard to its content and how it has been prepared. An independent examiner will be appointed and any comments will be passed on to him/her for consideration as part of the examination process.
