Introduction and background

We are seeking your views on main modifications to the Cambridge Local Plan, as identified by the inspectors.

The inspectors have asked us to consult on the modifications that they consider might be necessary for the local plan to be considered ‘sound’.

The modifications are also relevant to the South Cambridgeshire Local Plan. South Cambridgeshire District Council are running a similar consultation.

Full details about the proposed modifications are available on the consultation on main modifications to the Cambridge Local Plan page.

Next steps

We and South Cambridgeshire District Council will register and publish all comments received.

The comments will be submitted to the inspectors. They will decide whether any further hearings are required, or any issues need to be revisited.

The inspectors will present their final conclusions in their reports into the examination of the local plan. If the plan is found ‘sound’, with any necessary modifications, we will be able to be adopt it.
