South East Lincolnshire Local Plan

The South East Lincolnshire Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State in June 2017 for examination. The ‘Examination in Public’ commenced in October 2017 and was completed in April 2018. The examination has resulted in some changes being required to the plan and therefore, we will be undertaking a six week consultation on the ‘Main Modifications’ to the Plan from 16th July to 28th August 2018.

Comments can only be made on the changes to the plan and, like the previous consultation in April and May 2017, must focus on whether they make the Local Plan ‘sound’ and compliant with legal and procedural requirements. As a consequence there will not be any public exhibitions at village halls. A guidance note will be available to view on our website (http://www.southeastlincslocalplan.org/proposed-main-modifications/) from 16th July, which sets out advice on how to respond to the consultation.

We will be publishing a number of documents for consultation including: South East Lincolnshire Local Plan 2011-2036: Main Modifications Schedule; Policy Inset Maps, where changes have been made; Sustainability Appraisal; Habitats Regulations Assessment. These can all be commented on.

The documents will be available to view and download from http://www.southeastlincslocalplan.org/proposed-main-modifications/ Paper copies will be available to view at the council offices in Boston and Spalding, and in the area’s libraries and mobile libraries during normal office hours.

There are two ways in which comments can be submitted:

By emailing a comment form (available to download from the website) to the Programme Officer, Elaine Henton at programme.officer@southeastlincslocalplan.org; or

By post using the comment form (available at the above locations) to: Elaine Henton, The Programme Officer, South East Lincolnshire Local Plan, Boston Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, PE21 8QR.

Comments must be received by 5pm on Tuesday 28th August 2018. All ‘duly made’ comments received will be submitted to the Planning Inspectors for their consideration.

For further information, please contact the Programme Officer, Elaine Henton at programme.officer@southeastlincslocalplan.org or telephone: 01205 314385 or 07976 589885.
