Consultation on the Post-Submission Main Modifications to the Ipswich Local Plan - 20th October 2016 to 1st December 2016

Please note: this consultation is now closed.

Following the completion of the Examination Hearing sessions by an independent Planning Inspector in July 2016, a series of Post-Submission Main Modifications to the Ipswich Local Plan have been published for consultation.

The Inspector is inviting representations on the changes proposed to the Plan. Representations may only be made in relation to the Post-Submission Main Modifications and not on other parts of the Plan. The modifications are intended to address issues of legal compliance and/or soundness. Therefore, representations should be made in respect of the effect of the modification(s) on the Plan’s soundness or legal compliance.

Representations must be received no later than 11:45pm on Thursday 1st December 2016.

Late representations cannot be taken into consideration by the Inspector or the Council. The notice of consultation below explains where the documents are available for inspection and how representations should be submitted. The representations received by the Council on the Post-Submission Main Modifications will be passed to the Inspector, who will consider them when preparing his final report on the Plan.

Please note: If you submitted representations to the consultations undertaken between 12th December 2014 and 5th March 2015, and/or between 9th October and 23rd November 2015, the Inspector has considered these during the examination and there is no need to make these again.
