These are available in the Examination Document Library page.

What happens next?

The Council has initially reviewed the content of the consultation responses and is liaising with the Inspector regarding potential further changes/modifications to the plan. These are likely to require an additional consultation exercise and further details will be added to the Background to the Eden Local Plan Examination page when available.

All the consultation responses are contained in the Representations to Main Modifications Consultation document (PDF: 7.75Mb / 211 pages).

The above document was amended on 18 October 2017 due to comments from a representor (in respect of Main Modifications MM03, MM04, MM17, MM18 and MM21), which are now being presented in full at Appendix 9 instead of within the schedule of representations.
