Mendip Local Plan Part 2: Sites and Policies – MDC Member & Parish Bulletin

 8th September 2021 – Mendip Local Plan Part 2: Sites and Policies

 Following hearings in 2019 and 2020, the Inspectors report into the examination of Local Plan Part 2 has been published.

The report confirms that the Local Plan and policies are ‘sound’ and can be adopted subject to ‘Main Modifications’.

There are no new changes to the Modifications published for public consultation in January 2020 and February 2021.

This confirms the additional policies and sites allocated for development in the current version of the draft Plan.

The Inspector has also set out his reasons on the need for additional housing in the north east of the district – and the approach to identifying sites.

The report and schedule of modifications can be found on the Local Plan examination page:  www.mendip.gov.uk/localplanexamination

This will be reported to Cabinet on 4th October with formal adoption at Council to follow.
