Main Modifications (November 2021)

Following hearing sessions held in June 2021 and the completion of Action Points, the Inspector has provided suggested modifications to the Council’s Site Allocations Development Plan Document (Sites DPD), which were subject to consultation from November 2021 to January 2022. At this stage the Inspector has only issued the Main Modifications and not a Report setting out his conclusions.

The Council received almost 300 responses to the consultation. The responses have been collated and made available to view on the Sites DPD examination page. The responses have also been sent to the Inspector to inform his final report. Should the Inspector conclude that the Sites DPD meets legal and soundness requirements, it will be considered by the Council for adoption in Spring 2022.
