Development management policies modifications

peak district landscape

In January 2017 we completed consultation on the publication version of our Development Management Policies.

Since then we have been organising and considering the various representations made. In response we have decided to make a number of changes (modifications) to the plan both to improve its clarity but also to respond to many of the points arising. Before we submit the plan to the Secretary of State we now wish to re-consult and give representors the chance to consider the modifications we have made.

If you previously made comments on the plan the Authority recommends you refer back to your earlier comments and compare these to the modifications schedule in order to consider how and if the Authority has dealt with your points. Please refer to the beginning of the Modifications Schedule where you will find a personal responder number. You can use this to consider whether your representations led to a modification. Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

Following this consultation we will then submit the Publication Version of the Plan along with the modifications as an addendum and all the representations made during the process of preparation.

Therefore the consultation is only on the modifications at this stage. We will not be able to accept comments on the published plan.
