Details of the Consultation

Following the Examination Hearing Sessions for the emerging Local Plan, the Council has prepared a number of changes, known as Main Modifications, to the Brentwood Pre-Submission Local Plan and Addendum of Focussed Changes to the Pre-Submission Local Plan to address issues of soundness and/or legal compliance identified by the Inspectors. These are put forward without prejudice to the Inspectors' final conclusions on the Plan.

A schedule of Potential Additional Modifications has been prepared which are minor changes to the Plan and not those necessary for soundness.
