Local Plan Update

On Tuesday 13th November the Executive of HDC considered a proposal for amending Policy BE2 which would allow further expansion at Magna Park.  The Local Plan Inspector had stated that the originally Policy BE2 was not soundly prepared and that more work needed to be done to prove the need for any further development.  Although some changes have been made to the policy there was no additional appropriate evidence provided which showed the need for the development and the impact on the local communities.  The amended Local Plan will now go to full Council on Monday 26th November for approval.  There will then be a public consultation and the revised plan will go back to the Inspector for his comments.  Click here for more details.
