Braybrooke Neighbourhood Plan - Modification
Modification Document published pursuant to Section 61M (4a) Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) and Regulation 30 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended)
The Braybrooke Neighbourhood Plan was made by North Northamptonshire Council on 8 June 2023.
To correct a factual error, Braybrooke Parish Council have requested that a Minor Modification be made to the Braybrooke Neighbourhood Plan. North Northamptonshire Council confirms that this can be treated as a Minor Modification as it corrects a minor factual error and does not materially affect the policies of the made plan.
Policy H1 (Residential Site Allocation) is amended to make it clear that the reference to the provision of public access and seating on open space in this policy relates to the adjacent Top Orchard site and not Top Yard, the site which is allocated in Policy H1.
The proposed modification is set out below. No further changes are proposed.
Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) clarifies that there are 3 types of modification that can be made to a neighbourhood plan. Minor (non-material) modifications to a neighbourhood plan are those which would not materially affect the policies in the plan. These may include correcting errors, such as a reference to a supporting document, and would not require examination or referendum.
PPG states that minor (non-material) updates can be made by the Local Planning Authority at any time, but only with the consent of the qualifying body . Consultation, examination, and referendum are not required. At their meeting on Tuesday 19 September, Braybrooke Parish Council resolved that North Northamptonshire Council has consent to make the modification to the Braybrooke Neighbourhood Plan.
North Northamptonshire Council is publishing this Modification Document, confirming the modification made to the Braybrooke Neighbourhood Plan, is in accordance with Section 61M(a) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (as amended) (as applied to neighbourhood plans by section 38C(2)(c) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004) and Regulation 30 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended).
