The Council's draft Proposed Modifications tabled at Examination (January 2016)

Since the submission of the Swale Borough Local Plan Part 1, and up to January 2016, the Council continued to consider whether further changes to the plan were required in response to representations received and the discussions held during the Examination hearings. As a result, a number of additional changes to the plan were placed before the Examination.  These fell under two broad headings as follows

  1. Schedule A: Main modifications - These are modifications intended to secure the overall soundness of the Local Plan. The Council has taken a cautious approach to determine whether a modification represents a main modification. Generally, where there is doubt as to the classification of a modification, the Council has included it within Schedule A; and 
  2. Schedule B: Additional modifications - These are more minor in nature and are intended to address such matters as changes to improve the understanding of text and policies, factual corrections, omissions and updating. Grammatical and typographical changes are not normally covered as they will be the subject of on-going and final editing.

Both Schedule A (Main Modifications) and Schedule B (Additional Modifications) are available (18 January 2016, SBC/PS/036A and B).

Since receiving the Inspector's Interim Findings (ID/9a-d), the Council has continued to work on modifications to the draft Local Plan, in particular, in response to the issues raised by the Inspector. Consultation on the modifications has now closed.

The Council's draft Proposed Responses (2015)

In addition to those statements being prepared for discussion at the Examination, the Council is preparing a statement of its responses to all the representations received to the Submission version of the Local Plan. These should be viewed as “work in progress” and they will be updated in the weeks running up to the Examination itself. Up until that point they should be viewed as draft and subject to further change.
