From 19th March 2021 to 30th April 2021 Kettering Borough Council will be consulting on proposed Main Modifications to the Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan (SSP2) – Publication Plan and proposed changes to the Policies Map.
The SSP2 will allocate non-strategic sites to meet requirements in the North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy, which is the strategic Part 1 Local Plan, and will provide detailed policies for Kettering Borough.
The Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan was submitted to the Secretary of State on 28th May 2020. The Examination hearing sessions took place online between 8th October and 16th October 2020.
Following the Examination hearing sessions, a number of changes are proposed to the Site Specific Part 2 Local Plan – Publication Plan which are necessary to make the Plan sound. These are proposed without prejudice to the Inspector’s final conclusions which will take account of all the representations submitted in response to this consultation.
This consultation is only about the Main Modifications and changes to the Policies Map. It is not an opportunity to make comments on other aspects of the plan or to reiterate previous representations, as these have already been considered as part of the Examination process.
