It is expected that the Secretary of State’s modifications to the Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) will be released in July (likely to occur shortly before Parliamentary recess). Once published, the modifications will be subject to 12 weeks public consultation. It is likely that the consultation will not be delayed to take account of the peak summer holiday period therefore Parish Councils may find it useful to programme in appropriate time in their September agendas to consider the implications arising from the RSS modifications.
