Huntington Neighbourhood Plan - Examiner’s Report and proposed modifications
Purpose of the Report: To inform Members of the recommendations
made in the Examiner’s Report following examination of the
Huntington Neighbourhood Plan and further proposed modifications to
the plan pertaining the Green Belt policies. The report will set
out next steps in relation to progressing the Huntington
Neighbourhood Plan prior to Member’s making a decision to
progress the plan to referendum.
The report will include further modifications proposed following a challenge to the green belt policy through the examination process and subsequently. The further modifications proposed amend the plan to conform with the Council’s approach to decision-making where Green Belt is a consideration in line with the recent High Court Judgement ‘Wedgewood vs City of York Council’ (March 2020).
Whilst officers can modify the plan under the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations under specific circumstances, advice received on this matter recommends consultation on the proposed modifications to allow interested parties to comment and for those comments to be considered, if necessary.
The Executive will be asked to approve an additional Neighbourhood Plan (Regulation 17) consultation so that interested parties can comment on proposed modifications to the approach to Green Belt policies in the Neighbourhood Plan.
