Waveney Local Plan: Modifications

The Waveney Local Plan is currently being examined by an Independent Planning Inspector. Following the close of public hearings in October, the Inspector has written to the Council advising what modifications are likely to be required in order for the plan to be found ‘sound’. A consultation on these modifications runs until 5pm 28 January 2019.

This consultation is not an opportunity to re-state previous representations, as these have already been considered as part of the examination. This is also not an opportunity to raise new objections to the submitted Local Plan. This consultation is purely on the modifications and it is only these which are available for comment.

Main Modifications

Responses to this consultation will be considered by the Inspector before he prepares his final report on the Waveney Local Plan.

All of the Main Modifications have been screened to test whether they would have any impact on the results of the Sustainability Appraisal Report. Where necessary, updates have been made to the conclusions. This exercise can be found in the Sustainability Appraisal Addendum Report which is also published for consultation alongside the Main Modifications. Comments on the Sustainability Appraisal Addendum Report should be emailed to waveneylocalplan@eastsuffolk.gov.uk by 5pm 28 January 2019.

Habitat Regulations Assessment

   PDF Icon  Habitat Regulations Screening Assessment: Taking into account main modifications

All of the Main Modifications have been screened to test whether they would have any impact on the conclusions of the Waveney Local Plan Habitats Regulations Assessment. The Habitat Regulations Assessment has been republished in full to take into account the proposed Main Modifications and is subject to consultation alongside the Main Modifications. Comments on the Habitat Regulations Assessment should be emailed to waveneylocalplan@eastsuffolk.gov.uk by 5pm 28 January 2019.

Other documentation

Alongside the consultation on Main Modifications, the Council has also published a number of proposed ‘Additional Modifications’ which it wishes to make to the plan prior to adoption. These ‘Additional Modifications’ do not materially alter the policies of the plan and are generally minor clarifications, consequential amendments associated with the Main Modifications and corrections of factual errors in the supporting text of the plan. The Council would welcome any comments on these additional modifications. Comments should be emailed to waveneylocalplan@eastsuffolk.gov.uk by 5pm 28 January 2019. Please note the Inspector will not be considering comments made on the additional modifications.

A number of changes are also proposed to the Policies Maps to take into account ‘Main Modifications’ and ‘Additional Modifications’ and to correct other errors noticed since publication. A schedule of policies map changes has been published together with revised policies maps (District, Lowestoft, Market Towns and Villages) incorporating the proposed changes. The Council would also welcome comments on these proposed changes. Comments should be emailed to waveneylocalplan@eastsuffolk.gov.uk.
