RUNNYMEDE 2030 LOCAL PLAN - MAIN MODIFICATIONS CONSULTATION
Consultation on Proposed Main Modifications to the Runnymede 2030 Local Plan runs for 6 weeks from Friday 10th January until 23:59 on Friday 21st February 2020.
At the conclusion of Runnymede 2030 Local Plan Examination Hearings in November 2019, the Local Plan Inspector made it clear that 'Main Modifications' would be required to the Local Plan in order for it to be made 'sound' and move forward to adoption. The Inspector subsequently requested that the Council draft a schedule of Proposed Main Modifications to the Plan which would appear necessary to make the Plan 'sound'. This Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications has now been approved for public consultation by the Council's Planning Committee.
This consultation is only concerned with the Main Modifications which are proposed to be made to the Local Plan. The modifications proposed are put forward without prejudice to the Inspector's final conclusions. No other aspect of the Local Plan is subject to consultation at this time.
A Schedule of Proposed Additional Modifications has also been produced and has been published alongside the consultation material. This schedule sets out additional modifications that have been made to the Submission Local Plan. These modifications are not Main Modifications and are not subject to consultation. These additional modifications have been published for information only. A Sustainability Appraisal, Habitat Regulations Assessment and Equality Impact Assessment on the Proposed Main Modification has also been produced and is published below for information.
