Do you consider this part of the Plan has met the tests of soundness? No
Do you consider this part of the Plan to be unsound because it's not:
  • Consistent with national policy
Details of Representation

Paragraphs 1.46 and 12.7 of the Draft Local Plan state that all policies in the Local Plan are “strategic”.

Policy SCLP7.1: Sustainable Transport does not meet the definition of a strategic policy as set out in Paragraph 21 of the NPPF (February 2018).

Please set out what change(s) you consider necessary to make the Local Plan legally compliant or sound

The Local Plan should be amended to state that Policy SCLP7.1 is not a strategic policy
