Main modifications to the plan

Consultation on the Main Modifications

The Inspector set out his interim views on the modifications required to the policies which cover the strategic and land allocation aspects of the Local Plan, in order to make the Plan sound.  The Inspector's letter, and the accompanying documents, can be found in EX.410a to EX.410i.  In response to the Inspector's interim views, the Council prepared a series of Main and Minor Modifications to the Local Plan, which were approved by Council's Cabinet on 18 June 2013.

Consultation on the Main Modifications ran for 6 weeks, from Thursday 27 June to Friday 9 August 2013.  The full list of consultation documents for the Main Modifications, including the Representation Form and Guidance Notes, can be found below. Hard copies of documents are available at post offices and libraries across the Borough as well as the Council Offices, Ormskirk and the Customer Contact Centre, Skelmersdale.

The council have processed all the comments received by the deadline and passed them to the Planning Inspector for his consideration. A published version of all the representations can be found below as EX.818. Use CTRL+F to perform a search through the document.
