Representations are invited on the final draft of the Core Strategy, before it is submitted to the Secretary of State for examination. Preparation of the draft has been undertaken over a period of five years and brings together feedback from the autumn 2009 public consultation entitled ‘Have your Say on Planning Purbeck’s Future’ and the summer 2010 public consultation entitled ‘Where shall we build in Purbeck 2012-2026’.
The consultation period will commence on Monday, 1 November 2010 and will run for a period of seven weeks closing at 4pm on Monday, 20 December 2010. Representations received after this deadline will not be accepted.
