Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council

Below are the Regulation 25 (Public participation in the preparation of a development plan document) and 27 (Publication of development plan document) responses made by the Government Office for the West Midlands to Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council Development Plan Documents.

Extension of 'Saved Policies' beyond the 3 year period

The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 provides for the saving of policies in adopted or approved local, structure and unitary development plans for a period of 3 years while progress is made on the preparation of Local Development Frameworks.  Policies in development plans which were adopted or approved at the commencement date (28 September 2004) expired on 27 September 2007 unless the Secretary of State made a direction to extend such policies beyond that date.  Policies in those development plans which were adopted after 28 September 2004 are operative for 3 years from the date of adotion.  Planning authorities who wish to save policies beyond three years must also obtain a Direction from the Secretary of State to save those policies. This must be done six months before the policies are due to expire.

The Directions that have been made by the Secretary of State in relation to Walsall's Unitary Development Plan are set out below.
