Following submission to the Secretary of State on 26 February 2010, the Brierley Hill Area Action Plan (AAP) was subjected to independent scrutiny by way of an examination.

The purpose of the examination was to consider if the Development Plan Document (DPD) complied with the legal requirements and was ‘sound’. An independent Inspector assessed the whole document for legal compliance and soundness and concluded that it was a sound plan.
