East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council are consulting on proposed Main Modifications (MMs) to the emerging Joint Minerals Local Plan (the Plan) from Monday 11 March 2019 for 6 weeks. Responses to the consultation must be received on or before 12 noon on Tuesday 23 April 2019. 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.

Following the consultation, all representations to the Schedule of MMs and SA and HRA Update Note 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.
In addition to the MMs, the councils propose to make a number of minor changes to the Plan, known as Additional Modifications (AMs). The AMs are published alongside the MMs for completeness, but will not be examined by the Inspector. The AMs propose to address minor drafting errors and some factual corrections and do not affect the soundness of the Plan.

A track changes version of the Plan has also been published to aid understanding of the (Main and Additional) modifications proposed.
