Local Plan Examination
We submitted the Dartmoor Local Plan 2018 - 2036 to the Planning Inspectorate on 22 September 2020, for examination into the legal compliance and soundness of the Plan.
The Planning Inspectorate has appointed Ms R Barrett BSc MSc Dup Hist Cons MRTPI IHBC to hold an independent examination of the Dartmoor Local Plan. The Programme Officer responsible for assisting the Inspector with all aspects of the examination is Robert Young, who is independent of the Authority and works directly to the Inspector. Any correspondence or queries relating to the examination process should be directed to the Programme Officer.
