Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations Examination

The Publication Salford Local Plan: Development Management Policies and Designations plan was submitted to the Secretary of State for examination on 30 June 2021 and hearing sessions started on Tuesday 7 December 2021 and finished on Thursday 16 December 2021.

As requested by the planning inspector during the examination hearings, the following documents were produced by the city council and added to the examination library on 10 January 2022:

  • Actions arising from hearing sessions (see document SCC056)
  • Suggested site visits as identified through the examination hearings – schedule and maps (see documents SCC057 and SCC057a to c)

As further agreed at the final examination hearing session, the city council also provided the following documents to the planning inspector on 28 January 2022:

  • Modifications schedules (Main and Additional)
  • A new composite version of the plan

The inspector has now written to the council to say that he has reviewed the Main Modifications schedule provided to him and produced a revised draft for the city council to consider. As requested, the inspector’s letter and the documents referred to in it, have been added to the examination library as follows:

  • Letter from the planning inspector to Salford City Council relating to proposed modifications and consultation – 1 March 2022 (see document ID014)
  • Inspector’s revised draft Main Modifications schedule (see document ID015)
  • Draft Additional Modifications schedule (see document SCC059)
  • Draft composite plan containing Main and Additional Modifications (see document SCC060)

Please note that the inspector is not considering the Additional Modifications to the Plan as these are not required to address the soundness or legal compliance of the plan and therefore fall outside of the scope of the examination. Such modifications have been produced by the city council.

The city council formally responded to the inspector’s letter on 15 March 2022 (see document SCC061). An update was provided by the city council on 28 April 2022 (see document SCC062).

Details of any further updates will be published on the latest news and updates page.
