SAD Modifications

Modifications to the Publication Plan SAD

The Site Allocations Document (SAD) was submitted to the Secretary of State, for independent Examination in September 2017. A series of public hearing sessions were then held as part of the Examination between 28 November and 8 December 2017.

As a result of discussions at the hearing sessions, the Planning Inspector has asked the Council to make a number of changes (known as Modifications) to the SAD to address issues of soundness.

Consultation - now closed

The modifications consultation ran for a period of 6 weeks from Wednesday 7 February until 5pm on Wednesday 21 March 2018. The Inspector will now consider the main proposed changes, and any responses made to them during the consultation period, to enable him to reach his final conclusions on the soundness of the SAD and write his report.

This is a formal stage of consultation and it is important that representations relate to the legal compliance/soundness of the Main Modifications. The Inspector will only consider representations which relate to the proposed changes and which are received during the consultation period.

You can either object or support the proposed modifications, based on whether you consider the changes to be legally compliant or ‘sound'. You should:

1. Complete a separate form for each Main Modification you are commenting on

2. Reference the representation with the Modification number, eg MM01

You should cover all the information, evidence and supporting information necessary to justify the representation and the suggested change. Please do not repeat previous comments, or comment on issues not related to the Modifications. We have prepared a guidance note and representation form to help you make comments.
