Sedgemoor Local Plan - Proposed Main Modifications Consultation

Between the 28th August and 10th October 2018 the Council is undertaking public consultation on the proposed main modifications to the submitted Sedgemoor Local Plan (2011-2032).

The Sedgemoor Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination on 1st August 2017. The Local Plan relates to the whole District and provides a strategy for delivering growth for Sedgemoor District up to 2032. Examination hearing sessions took place between December 2017 and March 2018. All details of the examination to date, including submission documents, examination documents and information relating to the previous hearing sessions is available to view on the Sedgemoor Local Plan Examination web page.

Following the hearing sessions the Inspector has identified what main modifications she is minded to recommend. These are the changes to the Local Plan that are considered necessary to make the plan sound and/or legally complaint. In identifying the proposed main modifications the Inspector has taken full account of all the evidence and information available and the discussions at the examination hearing sessions. The main modifications are as proposed at this stage. The Inspector will take account of all representations submitted in response to this consultation before finally concluding whether or not a particular modification is required to make the plan sound.

The Inspector is now inviting comments on the proposed main modifications. Details of how to make representations and where the consultation documents can be inspected are set out in the consultation notice below. Comments at this stage should only be made in relation to the proposed main modifications and associated consultation documents, not other aspects of the Local Plan outside the scope of the proposed main modifications consultation.
