Local Plan Update

Published: 29 June 2021

Following submission of Basildon Council's response to the Inspector's Initial Questions (IIQs) in January 2021, the Council has received a response from the Inspector which sets out the way forward for the Basildon Local Plan Examination. 

In his response, the Inspector now requires Basildon Council to publish a revised Housing Topic Paper and an updated housing land supply calculation arising from the use of the standard methodology, together with all other updated and new evidence the council has created since its submission in 2019.

The Inspector has also requested that Basildon Council publish the draft modifications to the Local Plan that are required as a result of the new and updated evidence. The Inspector would like a further six-week consultation on the new evidence, the proposed modifications and the responses to his initial questions. Go to www.basildon.gov.uk to find out more.
