LETTER: Judicial Review would test plan

Last week’s Editorial (15.10.15, p34) reports Horsham District Council’s statement that Cllr Vickers’ housing plan ‘has been found sound and legally compliant’.

Has it? It may have been found ‘sound’ by a retired planning inspector having to balance the government’s top-down housing target but Cllr Vickers’ plan hasn’t been found to be ‘sound’ in a court of law.

And so it may be that the finished document appears to fit in with the National Planning Framework (NPF) but the process many would argue has been legally flawed and only a Judicial Review can test that now.
