Tewkesbury borough plan main modifications consultation

Following the examination hearings in early 2021 and in response to the Inspector’s post hearing’s letter, the Council prepared a schedule of main modifications to the plan. The main modifications were approved at the meeting of the Council on 20th October 2021 and were published for consultation as required by the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.

The main modifications to the Tewkesbury borough plan were consulted on between the 1st November 2021 until 4th January 2022. No further comments can be received by the Inspector at this stage in the examination process.

The consultation sought views on the proposed main modifications only. It was not an opportunity to raise matters that either were, or could have been, part of the earlier representations or hearings on the submitted plan.  Comments were to focus on whether the proposed main modifications comply with legal requirements and are considered sound. These modifications have been put forward without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions on the Tewkesbury borough plan, and following the close of this consultation the representations have been passed to the Inspector before the publication of his final report.

A summary of the responses received to the main modifications consultation with comments from the Council is available to view below:

Pre-submission Tewkesbury borough plan

Tewkesbury borough plan pre-submission consultation (September 2019)

The pre-submission TBP was published for its Regulation 19 consultation as required by the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012.

The consultation was available for comment from Friday 4th October to 5pm Monday 18th November 2019.

This Regulation 19 pre-submission consultation was the final stage of consultation before the plan was submitted to Secretary of State for its independent examination.  Following submission, an appointed Planning Inspector began the examination of the plan and considered whether it was sound and legally compliant and met the tests of the National Planning Policy Framework.

All representations received to this consultation were submitted to the Secretary of State and considered as part of a public examination by the Planning Inspector.

Following the plan’s Regulation 19 consultation in late 2019, a spreadsheet of all pre-submission consultation responses is now available to view, alongside the list of omission sites.

The development of the pre-submission plan was supported by a sustainability appraisal (integrating Strategic Environment Assessment, Health Impact Assessment and Equality Impact Assessment) and a habitats regulation assessment.  This process considers the environmental, social and economic outputs of the plan and ensures that development meets the needs of both present and future generations.
