The North London Waste Plan (NLWP) is being examined by an independent Planning Inspector, Mr Stephen Normington BSc DipTP MRICS MRTPI FIQ FIHE, whose role is to assess whether the plan complies with the legal requirements and is sound.
Following the NLWP hearing sessions in November 2019 the North London Boroughs consulted on Main Modifications to the NLWP October-December 2020.
The consultation was limited in scope to issues of soundness or legal compliance of the Main Modifications and not about any other aspects of the plan.
A schedule of Proposed Modifications was published for consultation along with a Sustainability Appraisal Addendum, Habitat Regulations Assessment and other supporting documents. These documents are available under Main Modification Consultation Documents below.
The Inspector will take into account any representations made in response to the NLWP consultation. All representations made during the Main Modification consultation are available below.
The North London Boroughs have prepared responses to the representations on Main Modifications and these are set out in Appendix C of the ‘Report on NLWP Main Modifications Consultation’ below. These responses have been given to the Inspector for him to consider in the final stages of the examination and to inform the recommendations in his final report.
A small number of additional moficiations were made to reflect changes to the NPPF (see Letter to Inspector 5th August 2021). These are very minor and do not affect the context of any policies or the overall objectives of the Plan. The Schedule of Modifications and NLWP have been updated accordingly.
The Programme Officer (PO), who works on behalf of the Planning Inspector, is organising the Examination and Hearings and is the main point of communication between the Inspector and those who made representations. The Programme Officer is Pauline Butcher. Her contact details are E: firstname.lastname@example.org T: 07731 956558
