Consultation plan made up of multiple documents

The consultation plan can be made up of multiple documents, provided that together these cover the requirements in the criteria and compliance notes and provided that they are the most up to date pieces of documentation. Clear links should be made between the documents that make up the consultation plan to promote a joined up approach to the consultation process.

Consultation is often a detailed and iterative process and there may not be sufficient knowledge to fully set out the consultation content within the first consultation plan developed for a site.
