Local Plan Update

Cotswold District Council submitted the Cotswold District Local Plan 2011-2031 Submission Draft (Regulation 19) – together with Focussed Changes and Minor Modifications – for examination in July 2017 (the “submitted plan”).

Public hearing sessions were held into the submitted plan (Submission Document SD007) during October and November 2017. A number of issues have been raised during the examination which requires further amendments – Main Modifications – to the submitted plan.

As prescribed by the examining Inspector’s Main Modifications Note January 2018 (Examination Document ED080), a six week period of public consultation should be undertaken in accordance with the Council’s Statement of Community Involvement in a similar manner to that in which it would be carried out under Regulation 19. The Note clarified that the consultation will only cover the proposed Main Modifications and changes to the policies map; not other aspects of the Plan or ‘omission sites’.

The period for submission of representations on the Main Modifications to the submitted plan will run for six weeks from Monday 19th February 2018 until Wednesday 4th April 2018. Representations must refer to the relevant reference number and arrive at Cotswold District Council by no later than 5pm on Wednesday 4th April 2018.

Public drop-in Events will be held on:

· Thursday 15th March 2018 from 2pm to 6.30pm at the Committee Rooms, Council Offices, Trinity Road, Cirencester.

· Wednesday 21st March 2018 from 2pm to 6.30pm at Moreton Area Centre, High Street, Moreton-in Marsh

These would not be matters for the Inspector’s consideration and do not form part of this consultation; however, they will be published on the Council’s Local Plan examination web page for information.
