Southend Central Area Action Plan (SCAAP)

Southend Central Area Plan (SCAAP) - Examination Stage

Proposed Modifications

As part of the examination process the Council has made a request to the Inspector to make modifications (changes) to the Plan, which were deemed necessary to make the plan sound/legally compliant and appropriate for adoption by the Council. These are set out as ‘Main Modifications’ and are the modifications that the Inspector has advised must be subject to public consultation. For completeness, the Council is also consulting on a number of minor modifications to improve readability, although these do not relate to the soundness of the Plan.

The Modifications are subject to public consultation, with comments invited during a six-week period from 11th August to 22nd September 2017. All comments must be received by 17:00 on Friday 22nd September 2017. This is a focused consultation, and representations should be made on the modifications and the supporting addendum report to the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) only. The outcome of the consultation will be considered by the Inspector before he finalises his report.

We encourage you to respond to the consultation online via:  http://www.southend.gov.uk/planningpolicyconsultations. Alternatively, response forms can be downloaded below.

Further details of the consultation, including where hard copies of the document can be viewed and how to submit your comments, is contained within the SCAAP Schedule of Modifications document below.
