The Council submitted the Cornwall Local Plan (March 2014) and the Schedule of Focused Changes (September 2014) to the Secretary of State in February 2015, the examination of which started in May 2015. Following the preliminary findings during the first week of the hearing of the examination, Cornwall Council requested that the Inspector suspend the examination to allow time for some further work. This resulted in a number of changes to the original submission document.
