    Planning Inspectors

    The Council submitted the Swansea Local Development Plan 2010-2025 (the 'LDP') to the Ministers of the Welsh Government for independent examination on 28 July 2017. Following formal acceptance of the submitted Swansea LDP on 4 August 2017, the Ministers of the Welsh Government have appointed Inspectors Rebecca Phillips BA(Hons) MSc DipM MCIM MRTPI and Paul Selby BEng (Hons) MSc MRTPI  to conduct the independent examination to assess the soundness of the LDP.  Rebecca Phillips has been appointed as the Lead Planning Inspector and Paul Selby as the Assistant Planning Inspector. On completion of the Examination, the Inspector will issue a Report for the Council giving recommendations for action which will be binding on the Council.

    Examination process

    The first meeting of the Examination will be a  Pre-Hearing Meeting (PHM), which will be held on Wednesday 13 December 2017 at 11.00. The PHM will take place at the Guildhall, Swansea SA1 4PE.  The purpose of the PHM is to explain and discuss procedural and administrative matters relating to the management of the Examination. The content and merits of the Plan and the representations will not be discussed at the PHM.
