North Herts. Local Plan – Consultation on main modifications

Examination of the North Hertfordshire Local Plan 2011 – 2031

The Inspector, Simon Berkeley, has now read the ‘homework’ and the draft schedule of main modifications produced by the Council. He has issued a note setting out his observations and comments on these documents:
“You will see from my note that I have raised a few queries. Once these are answered satisfactorily, once the changes I have outlined to the draft main modifications have been made, and once the sustainability appraisal of the modifications has been finalised, then the public consultation on the draft main modifications should commence at the earliest opportunity. For the avoidance of any doubt, the focus of the consultation is on the main modifications, but people will also be able to comment on the ‘homework’ and other documents produced by the Council. Please liaise with me, via Mrs St John Howe, about the precise timing and logistics of the consultation. A copy of the Council’s ‘homework’ documents, the draft schedule of main modifications and updated Sustainability Appraisal should be posted on the website by 20 November [2018].”

The Programme Officer, Louise St John Howe, has notified Representers to the Examination that we are invited to comment in writing on any documents submitted by the Council during the examination which we have not already had the opportunity to comment on in writing. “The inspector has asked for all the ‘homework’ documents, together with the draft schedule of main modifications and updated Sustainability Appraisal to be posted on the website by 20 November.” The Council will not be consulting on the main modifications until December at the earliest, so we have several weeks to look at all the documents before the consultation on the main modifications and the ‘homework’ documents commences.

Please refer to the updates as issued. They are available via the latest entries on this web page of NHDC Examination Latest News.
