Interim report on SDC core strategy due out in March

Interim report on SDC core strategy due out in March

AN interim report into the “soundness” of Stratford-on-Avon District Council’s planning core strategy will be issued around the middle of March, it was announced yesterday (Thursday). Planning inspector Peter Drew, who has been conducting the public examination of the council’s core strategy throughout January, said his decision to publish his interim findings in about six weeks’ time was linked to the timing of the general election on 7th May. Mr Drew told the lawyers, planning experts and members of the public present at today’s final hearing of his inquiry that a “guillotine” came down four to six weeks before an election, which meant that such reports could not be published in the run-up to the poll.

But the Bears fought back and overturned the lead before holding on for their ninth win from nine in a nail-biting finish.
