Here are the materials we prepared for the events. We are also making
a short guide to them.
Thanks so much for this and for the useful discussion. I have a few
follow up questions- is this the most appropriate place to post them?
1. What are the potential implications of a the APS not being
confirmed? We're assuming that you'd have to start work right away to
ensure you have a 5YLS but obviously there is no mechanism for
re-submitting the APS so presumably it would just highlight to
developers that you don't have an adequate 5YLS and put you in a more
vulnerable position than if you hadn't proceeded with the APS in the
2. My understanding of the reading of NPPF para 74 is that you need
to have a recently adopted plan to apply OR have had an APS confirmed
in the previous year to apply. As such this would then mean that if
you did get an APS confirmed in the year where you are deemed to be
'recently adopted' then you have missed the opportunity to do it at
all. This is supported by the mid Sussex outcome last year- they were
two months off the cut off for being recently adopted and so were not
able to proceed with their APS. We have a recently adopted plan now
but will not next year- am I correct to say that we could apply this
year but could only apply next year if our APS is confirmed this year?
