Further Main Modifications 2021

Update: 27 July 2021

The representations received in response to this consultation have now been processesd by the Council and available for interested parties to view on the online portal.

Update: 29 March 2022

The Council has recently updated the software that is used by the whole organisation to manage correspondence. Following the upgrade some links to previous consultation responses to the Local Plan are currently not working on the consultation portal. The Council are working with their IT team to resolve this issue as soon as possible so that all representations are available to view again. This does not affect the work of the Inspector who has been provided with access to all the representations throughout the Examination.

The report listing all the representations received can be viewed at:

ED232  Report on the responses to the Further Main Modifications

Some representations were missing from the report published in July 2021. These representations were delayed at the Council's mail processing centre but they have now all been processed. A revised report has been published, ED233 and the representations are available to view online.

The Inspector will be reading and considering all the representations that have been submitted. As things stand, and depending on the points rasied in the representations, it is his intention to issue his Final Report to the Council in early Autumn.

Consultation on Further Proposed Main Modifications and Additional Work produced by the Council 2021

The Inspector has issued a schedule of proposed Further Main Modifications to the emerging Local Plan. This follows the further examination hearing sessions held between November 2020 and February 2021. The schedule is put forward without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions.

Consultation on the Further Proposed Main Modifications and associated policy maps, the Sustainability Appraisal Addendum, an addendum note to the Habitats Regulations Assessment, and the additional work submitted to the examination by the Council.  The consultation period ended on Thursday 24 June 2021.  

The Council has prepared a version of the Local Plan to show the Plan as it is proposed to be modified.  It was not formally issued by the Inspector as part of the Further Proposed Man Modifications consultation but has been produced by the Council to help decision makers and those (considering) applying for planning permission.

The Schedule of Further Proposed Main Modifications, as issued by the Inspector, is the definitive list of further proposed alterations to the plan. The Schedule takes precedence in the event of any conflict between the documents.
