Scarborough Borough Local Plan - Main Modifications

The council submitted the Scarborough Borough Local Plan for Independent Examination on 9 May 2016. The Secretary of State appointed Mr William Fieldhouse BA (Hons) MA MRTPI to undertake the Examination. He held a series of hearing sessions to discuss the Plan during August and September 2016.

Following the hearing sessions, the council has proposed modifications to the Local Plan to address concerns identified by the Inspector or other representors, or to reflect recent changes to national planning policy. In addition, the Council has proposed a number of changes, many of which are to improve the clarity of the document or update factual information. The proposed amendments are set out in the Scarborough Borough Local Plan – Main Modifications (Ref: PM-01) Consultation September 2016. This is accompanied by a further note on the Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) (Ref: PM-03) and an accompanying Sustainability Appraisal (SA) Note (Ref: PM-02). A Statement of Representations Procedure is also available to provide further details on the consultation and how you can view and respond to the documents.

The consultation will commence on Wednesday 21 September 2016 and will close at 5pm on Wednesday 2 November 2016. Consultation documents are displayed at Scarborough Town Hall, all libraries and Filey Evron Centre.
