North Warwickshire Local Plan Main Modifications Consultation

Hearings on the submitted Local Plan were held in September 2018, February 2019, April 2019 and December 2020.  A consultation is now taking place for 6 weeks until 14 April 2021 on proposed changes to the Local Plan which the Inspector considers to be needed for the Local Plan to be made sound.  These changes are known as Main Modifications.  A Schedule of Main Modifications has been prepared with each Main Modification having its own unique reference number.  In addition, the Main Modifications have been assessed through a further Sustainability Appraisal.  

If you wish to make a comment on any of the  documents, please use a Representation Form.  One form should be completed for each Main Modification (MM).  Representations should be confined to the Main Modifications and accompanying Sustainability Appraisal as published and only relate to the 'soundness' and/or 'legal compliance' of these.  They should not relate to matters already covered as part of the examination of the Local Plan or matters that could have been part of the earlier representations or hearings, on the submitted plan.  Please do not repeat earlier representations as these have already been considered by the Inspector.  

The Council will not be responding directly to your comments as the representations received will be passed to the Inspector conducting the examination for his consideration.  They will be considered in preparing his final report on the Local Plan.  

In addition, there are some minor changes to the document which are called Additional Modifications (NWBC33).  These are changes proposed by the Borough Council which are not considered to affect the effectiveness or soundness of the Local Plan.  These have also been given a unique reference number.  Please email or send any comments on these to the Borough Council who will consider them.  

In addition to assist with the Main Modifications the Borough Council has prepared a topic paper on housing covering the stepped trajectory and the 5-year housing land supply (NWBC32).  This paper does not form part of the consultation but is provided to give assistance and explain the figures in more detail.




All other documents relating o the Local Plan can be found on our Local Plan Examination Pages
