Main Modifications Public Consultation

  • 18 November 2016-13 January 2017 - Now Closed

As part of the ongoing Examination of the Haringey Local Plan, the council published the schedules of proposed post-hearing modifications for each of the four DPDs listed above for public consultation. The proposed post-hearing modification arose as a result of both the council’s consideration of comments received to Pre-submission consultation (held from 8 January to 4 March 2016) and from the hearing sessions for the Examination in Public, which were held from August to September 2016. The main modifications have been proposed to ensure the Local Plan documents comply with the soundness tests set out in the National Planning Policy Framework.

The Modifications to the four DPDs can be viewed below:

These should be read alongside the Pre-submission version of the documents, set out below:
