Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications

The Inspector invited comments on the proposed Main Modifications as part of the examination process for the Local Plan 2031 Part 1. The Proposed Main Modifications were identified by the Inspector as those necessary to make the Spatial Strategy and Strategic Policies contained within the Local Plan sound.

      The Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications consultation closed on 14 September 2016. The Council received a total of 178 comments from 70 individual consultees. The Inspector considered all representations to the Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications consultation before publishing his final report.

      Additional Modifications and Strikethrough Plan

      The Council also published a Schedule of Additional Modifications comprising changes of a minor nature to update the Plan, correct any errors and to provide additional clarity when interpreting the Plan's Strategic Policies. This document was not subject to public consultation but was purely published for additional information and clarity alongside the Proposed Main Modifications to the Local Plan 2031 Part 1.

          The Council produced a strikethrough version of the Local Plan 2031 Part 1 to illustrate the Proposed Main Modifications and Additional Modifications. This did not form part of the consultation and was published purely to assist understanding;
