Main Modifications Consultation

The Council consulted on the proposed Main Modifications to the Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan and on proposed changes to the Policies Map from Friday 19 March 2021 to 5.30pm on Friday 30 April 2021.

The Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State on 28th May 2020. The Examination hearing sessions took place online between 8th October and 16th October 2020.

Following the Examination hearing sessions a number of changes are proposed to the Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan – Publication Plan which are necessary to make the Plan sound. These are proposed without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions which will take account of all the representations submitted in response to this consultation.

The changes are available to view in the schedules below:

This consultation was only about the Main Modifications and changes to the Policies Map. It was not an opportunity to make comments on other aspects of the plan or to reiterate previous representations, as these have already been considered as part of the Examination process.

Representations were invited on the proposed Main Modifications, the proposed changes to the Policies Map and on the Sustainability Appraisal Report Addendum and Habitat Regulations Assessment Addendum as accompanying new evidence but not on any other aspect of the plan.
