The Local Plan consultation (which includes this Issues and Options consultation) is premature. NSC cannot conduct a proper consultation when very significant issues have yet to be addressed through the JSP process and formal examination. It is wrong to predict or presuppose the outcome of the JSP examination in this manner. Carrying out these consultations would require multiple participants to presume the JSP Inspectors’ findings which are at least 12 months away from being concluded.
