A meeting of the Luton and South Beds Joint Sub Committee was held on 3 February 2012.
Two documents applying to the area of Luton Borough Council, an interim Local Development Scheme and interim Statement of Community Involvement, were adopted to enable the commencement of preparation of a new Local Plan.
The Luton and southern Central Bedfordshire Joint Core Strategy.
The Luton and South Bedfordshire Joint Committee resolved on the 29th July 2011 to seek the withdrawal of the Luton and southern Central Bedfordshire Joint Core Strategy on the following grounds:
"In the light of the recent decision by the Executive of Luton Borough Council to seek a withdrawal of the Core Strategy on the singular ground that a specific site allocation to the West of Luton has not been allocated, and notwithstanding that in other respects the Core Strategy is supported, then it is agreed that the Joint Committee will recommend to the Secretary of State that the Core Strategy be withdrawn under the terms of the relevant legislation."
A copy of the letter to the Secretary of State is included here.
A letter from the Secretary of State was received on 7th September 2011, in which it was confirmed that the Core Strategy must be withdrawn. A copy of the letter is included here.
A letter from the Planning Inspector in relation to the above-mentioned letter from the Secretary of State is included here.
