Residents Have Further Say on Core StrategyPublished Friday, 25 July 2014
Residents in Ribble Valley still have time to have their say on the main modifications to the borough’s core strategy.
The strategy, which sets out development in the borough until 2028, including how many new houses the area needs and where they might be built, underwent a series of hearings in January as part of an examination in public by a Government inspector.
Following the hearings, inspector Simon Berkeley asked for further consideration of housing levels, how houses were distributed, the treatment of villages and land allocation.
As a result, modifications were made to the strategy and opened for public consultation.
Terry Hill, chairman of Ribble Valley Borough Council’s planning and development committee, said: “It has been brought to our attention that some people may have focussed on the strategy document and overlooked the main modifications table.
“In agreement with the planning inspector, we are subjecting the main modifications to a further six-week period of consultation.”
Following the consultation, the responses will go back to the inspector for final consideration.
Residents can comment by emailing email@example.com or by writing to Forward Planning Team, Ribble Valley Borough Council, Council Offices, Church Walk, Clitheroe, Lancashire, BB7 2RA.
Comments are invited on the main modifications only and it is not necessary to resubmit previous responses.
