Wyre Borough Council
Consultation on Proposed Main Modifications to the Wyre Local Plan
Statement of Representations Procedure and Availability of Documents
Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012
The Wyre Local Plan (the Plan) was submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination on 23 January 2018. Following the Examination in Public (EiP) hearing sessions from 15 May 2018 to 5 June 2018, the Inspector has requested the council to undertake consultation on the proposed Main Modifications required to make the Local Plan sound. This is without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions and recommendations on the Local Plan. The proposed Main Modifications generally take the form of changes, deletions or insertions to policies and supporting text. Representations received relating to the proposed Main Modifications will be submitted to the Inspector for his consideration.
A Sustainability Appraisal Addendum 2018 has also been prepared and is available for consultation. The council is also publishing Additional Modifications which are of a minor nature and do not materially affect the policies set out in the Local Plan (e.g. factual updates and correcting typographical or grammatical errors). They are not necessary for soundness and as such are not part of the consultation.
The consultation period is for six weeks, from 12 September to 5.00pm 24 October 2018 inclusive. The consultation is limited to the Schedule of Main Modifications and the accompanying Sustainability Appraisal Addendum 2018 (“the consultation documents”) only. It is not an opportunity to comment on other aspects of the Local Plan. If you submitted comments on previous versions of the Local Plan, the Inspector has considered these during the examination and there is no need to make these again unless affected by a Main Modification.
The consultation documents and updated supporting documents can be viewed on the council’s website www.wyre.gov.uk/localplan Paper copies of the consultation documents will be available for inspection throughout the consultation period at:
