Solihull Council officers are holding two webinars to help residents and businesses make final representations about Solihull’s Draft Submission Plan. Representations can be submitted up to Monday 14 December 2020, before the Plan is submitted for independent examination. Solihull’s Local Plan will guide the development of the borough for the next decade and beyond. It is the basis for future planning decisions as it creates a ‘blueprint’ for when and where major developments should and shouldn’t take place.
The grounds for making representations can only relate to the soundness and legal compliance of this Draft Submission Plan. Councillor Andy Mackiewicz, Cabinet Member for Climate Change, Planning and Housing explains what the plan means for Solihull in a short video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLKRKPTgzOI&feature=youtu.be
Those wanting to make representations need to visit the Local Plan Review page of the Council website as at this stage there is a formal method of submitting a representation. A short video explains how to make a representation here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q96ntQn3EYo&feature=youtu.be
