PROPOSED SUBMISSION SOUTH SOMERSET LOCAL PLAN 2006-2028 - EXAMINATION SUSPENSION: PROPOSED MAIN MODIFICATIONS NOVEMBER 2013

Consultation Document

9 Point for Clarification 3: Reference to Non Statutory Documents

Proposed Minor Modifications

9.1 The minor modifications listed below are made as a result of paragraph 65 – References to Non-Statutory Documents, of the Inspector’s Preliminary Findings, 3 July 2013. In paragraph 65 the Inspector identifies that the non-statutory documents referred to in Policies PMT2: Chard Phasing[1] , HW1: Provision of open space, outdoor playing space, sports, cultural and community facilities in new development[2] and HG5: Achieving a Mix of Market Housing[3] have not been through a statutory process therefore any references to them would be more appropriately placed within the supporting text rather than the policies themselves. To place in the Policy would imply statutory weight to them yet they have not been through a statutory process.

9.2 The Proposed Minor Modifications are presented in the table below (any new text is underlined and deleted text is shown as crossed through).

1. Chard Implementation Plan [back]
2. 'adopted assessments and needs strategies’ [back]
3. ‘Strategic Housing Market Assessment or successor documents’ [back]
