Current Status Accepted
To be "Sound" a Plan should be Positively Prepared, Justified, Effective and Consistent with National Policy
Do you consider that this ‘Main Modification’ is sound? No
If you consider this ‘Main Modification’ to be unsound, on which grounds do you consider it so?
  • Not effective
Please give details of why you consider this ‘Main Modification’ to be unsound in accordance with the tests above (if applicable)? The amenity of adjoining residents should be a consideration. The amended policy only talks about the impact on 'the area' and does not afford or guarantee adjoining properties any protection from unsightly, overbearing or intrusive development, therefore criteria (e) should be reinstated.
