East Riding of Yorkshire and Kingston upon Hull Joint Minerals Local Plan Main Modifications Consultation open for comment

Thu, 14 Mar 2019

East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Hull City Council are inviting representations on proposed main modifications to the emerging Joint Minerals Local Plan.

The plan is currently under examination and the main modifications 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 main modifications aim to address the concerns of objectors and issues raised by the Independent Planning Inspector. A sustainability appraisal and habitats regulation assessment note has also been prepared.

Consultation started on Monday 11 March 2019 and representations must be made before 12noon on Tuesday 23 April 2019.

Following the consultation, all written 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 co-operate.

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 that was adopted in January 2004.
