Inspector and Programme Officer

Inspector

The Secretary of State has appointed Inspector David Hogger BA MSc MRTPI MCIHT as the Inspector from the Planning Inspectorate to carry out an independent examination of the Adur Local Plan.

The Inspector's task is to consider the soundness of the submitted plan, based on the criteria set out in paragraph 182 of the National Planning Policy Framework (the framework).

The relevant soundness criteria are whether the local plan is:

  • positively prepared (based on a strategy that seeks to meet objectively assessed development and infrastructure requirements, including unmet requirements from neighbouring authorities where it is reasonable to do so and consistent with achieving sustainable development)
  • justified (the most appropriate strategy when considered against the reasonable alternatives, based on proportionate evidence)
  • effective (the plan should be deliverable over its period and based on effective joint working on cross-boundary strategic priorities)
  • consistent with national policy (the plan should enable the delivery of sustainable development in accordance with the policies in the framework)

Programme Officer

The Programme Officer is an independent officer of the examination and works on behalf of the Inspector to organise and manage the administrative and procedural matters of the examination process and is the appropriate point of contact for any queries in relation to the examination.
