Preparation of the Development Control Policies DPD

We submitted the Development Control Policies DPD to the Secretary of State in January 2006 and examination hearings to test its 'soundness' were held in October 2006.

In May 2007, the Inspectors issued their Inspectors Report concluding that the Development Control Policies DPD is 'sound' subject to a number of binding changes being made.

The Development Control Policies DPD was formally adopted on 19 July 2007.
