On Tuesday 29th January 2019, the Inspectors issued their ‘Inspectors’ Report’ , which sets out their assessment of the South East Lincolnshire Local Plan, i.e.:
- whether the Plan’s preparation has complied with the duty to co-operate and other legal requirements; and
- whether the Plan is ‘sound’ ( positively prepared, justified, effective, and consistent with national policy).

Their Report concludes that, subject to 38 Main Modifications being made to the version submitted to the Secretary of State on 23rd June 2017, the South East Lincolnshire Local Plan is sound, legally compliant and capable of adoption. It is hoped that a meeting of the South East Lincolnshire Joint Strategic Planning Committee will be held in March 2019, at which the Local Plan will be formally adopted.
