To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what representations he has received from Northumberland County Council on the Northumberland Local Plan.

Answer (Dominic Raab)

Northumberland County Council submitted representations to the Secretary of State in January outlining how it proposes to accelerate the preparation of its Local Plan. Their current timetable proposes that the Local Plan will published for consultation in winter 2018 and submitted for examination in summer 2019, but we have asked the Council to accelerate this timescale based on advice from the Planning Advisory Service.

Responsibility of resources for preparation of the Local Plan is with the County Council. Government has provided £2 million funding to the Planning Advisory Service to provide support to local authorities for the period 2017-2019.
