Melton Borough Council

The withdrawn Melton core strategy

The Melton Core Strategy was withdrawn on the 15th April 2013 following receipt of preliminary conclusions from the Planning Inspector, Mr Harold Stephens, appointed to undertake the examination of the plan. The inspectors letter and our response are available to view.

On 11th April 2013 the Secretary of State’s independent Planning Inspector, Mr Harold Stephens, wrote to the Council setting out his preliminary conclusions. The Inspector considered the Core Strategy to be “unsound” in its present form and that the changes required to make it sound would be too significant to be dealt with through modifications.

We have now commenced work on the new Melton Local Plan, this will cover up to the next 25 years, for more information visit the new Melton Local Plan website.
