Plan Proposal and Consultation

(Reg 15 and 16)

Formal submission of the plan to council and consultation. The consultation will run from 3rd August to 14th September ​2020. Please note the documents that form the evidence base to this plan are fully available on the Modbury Neighbourhood plan website. 


South Hams District Council have decided to reopen the consultation for a further six weeks period between Monday 5th October 2020 and Monday 16th  November 2020, due to an error in the previous consultation process.


As you will be aware the Modbury Neighbourhood Plan has been subject of two rounds of consultation, the second round ended on Monday 16th November 2017.

As a result of some consultation replies being received at the latter end of the above process, the Council has been requested to extend the consultation period to enable full consideration of these submissions to be made including comments upon them.

The Council consider this a reasonable request in the circumstances. As such the Regulation 16 consultation in respect of the Modbury Neighbourhood is extended until 21st December 2020.


The following correspondence was sent to the Examiner appointed to consider the Modbury Neighbourhood as such this Plan has been formally withdrawn for Examination.

"Dear Deborah,


I am writing to you following a meeting of the Parish Council last night, August 25th at which it was formally agreed to withdraw the Modbury Neighbourhood Plan from Examination and to resubmit in due course.


Notification of this will appear on the Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan websites.


We thank you for your patience in extending the deadline in order to allow us time to reconsider our position.


Kind regards,


Ann Turner ,


On behalf of Modbury Parish Council and Neighbourhood Plan Group"
