Christchurch and East Dorset Core Strategy - Examination Library

The Core Strategy and a full list of submission and supporting documents which have been submitted to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government can be viewed here.

A Covering Letter and a series of Submission, Core and Evidence Documents were sent to the Secretary of State. The documents sent can be downloaded from the tables on this page. The submitted plan and other submission documents can also be viewed in hard copy at the Christchurch Civic Offices.

Document additions

A series of Further Documents (FD) have been produced to accompany those listed below on this page. These documents were last updated on 23 September 2013.

For ease of reference a consolidated version of the Core Strategy that combines the Pre-Submission (SD1), Proposed Changes (SD18) and Minor Changes (SD19) documents has been added as Submission Document SD28. There are no further changes to policy in the consolidated document and the Inspector will make use of the document for the purposes of the examination.

A series of documents have also been provided that set out a consolidated summary and analysis of the Core Strategy responses received at the Pre-Submission (SD10) and the Schedule of Proposed Changes stages (SD22.3). They are grouped by topic and are listed under Submission Document SD29. As with the consolidated Core Strategy, the Inspector will make use of the documents for the purposes of the examination.

Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole Structure Plan (2001)

The Localism Act 2011 provided the Secretary of State with power to make an order to revoke regional strategies. Revocation of the Regional Strategy for the South West came into force on 20 May 2013.

At the same time, with one or two specific exemptions none of which affect Dorset, the Government revoked saved structure plan policies in the South West, including all the saved policies in the Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole Structure Plan.

The Dorset Structure Plan Schedule of revoked saved policies is retained for archive and reference purposes.
