This RFQ seeks quotations from an appropriately qualified and experienced Programme Officer to organise and administer the Public Examination into the Cheshire East Local Plan Strategy dealing with all interested parties and acting as a link between the Council and the Planning Inspectorate.
Cheshire East Council has a statutory duty to produce a Local Plan to provide a Local Plan Strategy and strategic planning policies for the Borough to 2030.
The Spatial Planning Team in the Strategic and Economic Planning Directorate is responsible for the production of the Local Plan.
The Council has published its Local Plan Strategy – Submission Version and accompanying documents ready for submission to the Secretary of State in preparation for an Examination in Public. It sets out the Council’s case for sustainable economic growth and is the strategy that the Council wants to adopt to manage development in Cheshire East up to 2030.
Prior to submission to the Secretary of State, the Council has invited representations on the Local Plan Strategy – Submission Version, as well as its accompanying documents; the Sustainability Appraisal, the Habitats Regulations Assessment and the Policies Map.
The representations period runs for six weeks from the 14th March 2014 to 5pm on the 25th April 2014.
The Council intends to submit the Local Plan Strategy to Government to be examined by a Planning Inspector expediently after the 25th April 2014. Unless a Programme Officer (PO) is in place, the Planning Inspectorate will not appoint an Inspector and the Local Plan will not be able to progress to Examination.
A Programme Officer is now required by Cheshire East Council to organise and administer the Local Plan Examination dealing with all interested parties and acting as a link between the Planning Inspectorate, the appointed Inspector and the Council.
The closing date and time for receipt of the RFQ is 12 Noon on Friday 4th April, 2014.
