It is the responsibility of the Borough Council to collate all the representations and pass them on to the independent examiner, who will look at them and the plan documents when assessing whether the plan meets the legislation and can therefore proceed to referendum.  It is estimated that the amended Neighbourhood Plan will be examined in early October 2015.
