East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council are inviting representations on the proposed Main Modifications (MMs) to the emerging Joint Minerals Local Plan (the Plan). The majority of the MMs were identified and discussed at the examination in public hearing sessions that took place at County Hall, Beverley on 8 and 9 January 2019. The MMs address the concerns of objectors and address issues raised by the Independent Planning Inspector.
A Schedule of Main Modifications and Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulation Assessment Note have been prepared by the councils and are published for consultation.
Following the consultation period, all representations will be considered by the Inspector in the preparation of his final report which will set out any necessary modifications to make the plan ?sound? and legally compliant. The Inspector must also be satisfied that the requirements for public consultation and sustainability appraisal have been met and that the Plan has been prepared in line with the duty to cooperate. The Inspector may request that further hearing sessions are arranged if any issues arise. However, these will only be scheduled exceptionally.
Once adopted, the Plan will replace the existing Joint Minerals Local Plan (adopted in 2004).
