Local Green Spaces Modifications Consultation

Local Green Spaces – Modifications Consultation

The South Derbyshire Local Green Spaces Development Plan Document (DPD) was submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination in May 2019.  The Examination hearing session took place in September 2019.  The Inspector has written to the Council to confirm the Examination can proceed to consultation on the proposed Main Modifications.

Main Modifications are those which the Inspector considers are necessary to make the plan sound and/or legally compliant.  Main Modifications are proposed without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions on the Local Green Spaces DPD, which will take account of all representations submitted in response to this consultation.

Representations should be made regarding legal compliance and soundness. This is not an opportunity to raise again matters relating to other parts of the submitted Plan that have already been considered by the Inspector during the Examination. The Inspector will only consider representations from this consultation which relate the proposed Modifications.

The Council has also published a schedule of Additional Modifications which are minor changes to update the Plan, to correct errors and to provide clarification in interpreting policies in the Plan.  These do not relate to the soundness/legal compliance of the Plan.  These are published alongside the Main Modifications for the sake of clarity, however representations are not being sought on them. 

The following documents are available for consultation:

  • Main Modifications Schedule
  • Sustainability Appraisal Addendum

The following accompanying documents are published for information:

  • Additional (Minor) Modifications Schedule
  • Local Green Spaces Plan, incorporating the proposed modifications
