Problems arise in the sequencing of Development Plan Document (DPD), in hybrid DPDs, level of detail required in core strategy DPD, consistency between the Core Strategy plan and the Regional Spatial Strategy plan period, undertaking robust sustainability appraisals/strategic environmental assessment, the need for appropriate assessment of DPDs, undertaking a correct site allocation policy DPD consultation, and risks of the DPD evidence base being in the process of updating.
