Examination hearings

During the examination of the plan, the need for further Main and Additional modifications was identified. The modifications were published on 30 May 2022 and comments were invited on these until 11 July 2022. Details of any further updates will be published on the examination latest news and updates page.

A series of public hearings took place during the examination of the Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations as follows:

  • Tuesday 7 December 2021 to Friday 10 December 2021
  • Tuesday 14 December 2021 to Thursday 16 December 2021

The hearings were conducted by the Planning Inspector and the main purpose of the hearing sessions was for the Planning Inspector to investigate the evidence supporting the plan further by asking questions of the participants and hearing their contributions on the issues critical to the soundness and legal compliance of the plan.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the hearings were held virtually, and live streamed via Microsoft Teams.
