Robin Hood's Bay by Fridge ProductionsRobin Hood's Bay by Fridge Productions

Following a series of public hearings, the Inspector  invited the National Park Authority to consult on a schedule of main modifications to the draft North York Moors Local Plan, as submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.

These modifications were subject to a six week consultation period running from 19 February to 2nd April. Consultation has now closed.

Consultation Documents

The following documents were available for comment:

Schedule of Proposed Main Modifications

Sustainability Appraisal Addendum

Habitat Regulations Assessment Addendum

Supporting Documents

A number of supporting documents were also available to help the reader understand the changes being proposed or to set out other minor modifications to the Plan. These documents are available for information only:

A ‘track changes’ version of the Local Plan, showing proposed modifications underlined or struck through;

A ‘clean’ version of the Local Plan, with all the proposed modifications merged into the Local Plan;

A schedule of additional/minor modifications (which do not form part of the examination and will not be considered by the Local Plan Inspector). These include some minor proposed changes to the Policies Map.

Next Steps

Responses have been sent to the Planning Inspector. After assessing comments and assuming there is no need to consult with parties or reopen the Examination in Public the Inspector will issue his report. The Authority anticipates that the Plan will be adopted at the full Authority meeting on 22 June 2020.
