Hearing sessions

The Inspector has arranged nine hearings sessions regarding the Rotherham Core Strategy and they have produced guidance notes relating to the hearing sessions.
Only those people listed in the Inspectors matters, issues and questions will be able to participate in the hearing sessions. However, observers will be able to watch the hearings, which are taking place at Riverside House.

Throughout the examination a schedule of proposed modifications to Core Strategy will be maintained. It is a living document which will be added to as necessary. The content may therefore change over time. You are encouraged to check the schedule regularly.
