Next Steps

We will now carefully consider and analyse all the feedback received. Once we have reviewed all representations, these will be made publically available with our responses. 

We will then begin to make any required amendments to the plan. We will wait for the final report from the Inspector's on the New Southwark Plan and make any changes to the AAP which may be necessary to bring it in conformity with the NSP. This is likely to be in November 2021. The APP will then be published and consulted on as the proposed submission version. Following the proposed submission version consultation version consultation, we'll submit the plan to the Secretary of State for public examination.
