Lincolnshire County Council - Mandy Wood


Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) asked the Planning Inspectorate for advice on 3 December 2015 on how they could submit a response for Deadline 4, setting out their position with respect to a joint statement with the Applicant on the Sandhills Act 1932 that was requested to be submitted for Deadline 3. LCC had noted that the Applicant had commented on this statement in their submission for Deadline 3 on page 29 of "The Applicant?s Response to Deadline 3" (REP3-035)? but had not attached the statement.

Advice given

With respect to the Applicant?s response at Deadline 3 to which Lincolnshire County Council (LCC) refer, LCC will have seen the Applicant?s views set out on page 29 and that their intention is to submit a Joint Statement with Lincolnshire County Council at Deadline 4. It is for LCC to decide whether they wish to comment on the Applicant?s response and the wording on page 29. We are unable to advise LCC on this.
If LCC decide to submit their views to us in writing with respect to compulsory acquisition of public open space and the Sandhills Act 1932 and the proposed Joint Statement, we advise that they do so by Deadline 4 which is 5 January 2016, so that the Examining Authority can take account of this.
We would reiterate that at the hearing the Examining Authority stated a preference for a joint statement. Furthermore section 94(8) of the Planning Act 2008 provides legislation for the Examining Authority to not to take into account representations which they deem vexatious or frivolous.
