Consultation on the Main Modifications to the Local Plan

A new six week consultation on main modifications will commence on Thursday 30th May 2019 with the comment deadline being 5pm on Friday 12th July 2019. This new consultation is necessary as the wording of several modifications was not accurately presented in the corrected version of the Plan that was published (documents EX125B, EX125B Part 1, EX125B Part 2 and EX125B Part 3) and there were some inconsistencies with and omissions from the Schedule of Main Modifications document (EX123). As a result the Council has prepared a revised Schedule of Main Modifications (EX135) and is re-consulting on this document alone. Please note: in the Schedule of Main Modifications (EX135)The 'Reason for Change' under MM17A should refer to MM17 and not MM36.

To make a comment, please click on the consultation portal link at the top of the page. 

In commenting on these modifications you are asked to make representations on whether the plan is (a) legally compliant and (b) sound.

Please note that late representations will not be taken into account. 

Hard copies of the document can also be viewed at public libraries and offices in the district. For details of where you can view it, click here Icon for word Library and Office Locations [12.26KB].
