Paragraph 4 – Decision where no valid objections received

286.Paragraph 4 places a requirement on the local authority, where no valid objections are received within the 28 day period, to either confirm or reject the proposed scheme. However, a late objection may be treated as being valid so long as the local authority is satisfied that it was reasonable for the objector to make the objection after the specified deadline.
