Details of the Main Modifications consultation can be viewed below.

Consultation on the Local Plan Review (2013-2033) Proposed Main Modifications runs from 6 January – 17 February (5pm) 2020.

The new Local Plan is currently being examined by an independent Planning Inspector. Examination hearings were held in September 2018 and February 2019. The Planning Inspector published his Post-Hearings advice note in May 2019, in which he set out what changes (‘Main Modifications’) are necessary to the plan to make it ‘sound’. Following the Planning Inspector’s advice note a Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications to the plan has been prepared, together with a Sustainability Appraisal Addendum, Habitat Regulations Assessment Addendum, and an Addendum to the Equalities Impact Assessment that are necessary because of the Proposed Main Modifications. A Schedule of Additional Modifications, which are ‘minor’ and include clarifications, corrections and factual updates to the plan has also been prepared.

This consultation invites comments on the Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications and associated documents which will be sent to the Inspector for his consideration. The Planning Inspector will then decide if the plan can be found ‘sound’ and legally compliant, or whether further examination hearings are needed, before he prepares his final report with his conclusions on the examination of the Plan. Comments on the Additional Modifications will be considered by the Council. Comments are not being invited on the unchanged content of the draft Mid Devon Local Plan Review that we submitted to the Planning Inspector in March 2017 for examination.
