    SNC have produced Modifications to the South Northamptonshire (Part 2) Local Plan Regulation 19 Submission Draft. These follow Examination Hearings into the Plan which took place in June 2019 and address concerns raised by the Inspector or other representors during the Examination process.

    All Modifications have been subject to further sustainability appraisal and along with Modifications to the Plans Proposals Map and Monitoring Framework are being consulted upon. Once the consultation has closed, the Inspector will review the consultation responses and recommend whether the Part 2 Local Plan can be adopted by the Council.

    The Consultation runs for six weeks between the 7 October 2019 and 15 November 2019. All representations should be received by us no later than 5:00pm on Friday 15 November 2019. Responses received after that time will not be considered.
