Publication Local Plan Addendum (proposed modifications) (2021)

“A Fairer City” Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations Addendum (Proposed modifications) 

The council published the Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations (SLP:DMP) in January 2020 and invited comments on this document until 20 March 2020. The comments received to the Publication SLP: DMP can be downloaded at the foot of the page.

Whilst it was anticipated that the Publication SLP:DMP would be the version of the plan that the council would submit to the Secretary of State for independent examination, some changes to the plan were required for the following reasons:

  • To respond to changes in planning legislation introduced by the government
  • To respond to new evidence
  • To make the plan ‘sound’ as required by national planning policy

The proposed changes (referred to as ‘modifications’) were published as an addendum to the Publication SLP:DMP on 5 February 2021 and comments were invited on these until 19 March 2021. The proposed modifications are presented in two separate documents:

  • Main modifications: This contains the amendments which are considered necessary to make the plan sound and/or legally compliant; and
  • Additional modifications: This contains the more minor amendments to the plan which are, for example, to correct typos or improve clarity.

The main and additional modifications documents, updated policies map and the various updated supporting documents can be downloaded at the foot of this page. An interactive version of the updated policies map is also available to view online. View the individual chapters of the plan.

What happens next 

The comments received to the proposed modifications will be submitted to the Secretary of State in June 2021 for consideration at the public examination, alongside the Publication SLP:DMP and those comments that were submitted to the consultation on Publication SLP:DMP during January to March 2020. 

The plan will then be examined by a Planning Inspector and this process is likely to involve public hearings which it is expected will take place during October/November 2021.
