Proposed Main Modifications

Public Consultation on the Proposed Main Modifications

The South East Lincolnshire Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State on 23rd June 2017. The Secretary of State appointed two independent Inspectors to examine the Plan for its legal compliance and soundness. The Inspectors held public hearing sessions between 10th October 2017 and 26th April 2018.

At the hearing sessions, discussions focussed on those parts of the Plan which the Inspectors or representors considered not to be ‘sound’, and potential modifications to the Plan were put forward to address these issues. At its meeting on 29th June 2018, the Joint Strategic Planning Committee formally approved a Schedule of proposed Main Modifications for public consultation.

This Schedule is accompanied by:

  • a Sustainability Appraisal, which considers the modified Plan’s potential effects upon sustainability (this Sustainability Appraisal should be read as an addendum to the Sustainability Appraisal which was submitted to the Secretary of State alongside the Local Plan in June 2017);
  • a Habitats Regulations Assessment, which considers the modified Plan’s potential impacts on European wildlife sites; and
  • an Equality Impact Assessment, which considers the potential impact of the modified Plan on different groups of people within the community.

Representations are invited on the proposed Main Modifications from Monday 16th July 2018 to 5pm on Tuesday 28th August 2018. Representations can be submitted by e-mail or by post, and should be sent to the Programme Officer who will then forward them on to the Inspectors. It would be appreciated if all comments could be made on the form which is available by clicking the link below.

Please note that comments can be made only on the Main Modifications and accompanying documents. This is not a further opportunity to comment on other matters set out in the Submitted Plan, as these have already been considered by the Inspectors. All duly made representations will be made available to view on the Local Plan website.
