These policies were expected to expire on the 8 October 2007.  However in September 2007 the Secretary of State issued a Direction image - PDF icon (121KB - pdf help)  to save the policies, specified in the Schedule of the Direction image - PDF icon (126KB - pdf help), for an extended period of time and a Second Direction image - PDF icon (173KB - pdf help) (to correct an error in the 'Schedule of the Direction'). These save all the policies in the Plan.

In due course the policies will be superceded by policies in Regional Spatial Strategy (due for adoption in mid 2008) and/or Local Development Documents (when they are adopted).
