The Chairman introduced the item and made the following announcement:

 

“It is not possible to propose amendments to the Places and Policies Local Plan. .  As set out in Section 4 of the report, the legal position is clear. The law says that local authorities must either adopt the plan with the Inspector’s recommendations in full or not adopt the plan at all. There is no option to modify the plan further – that would be beyond the council’s legal powers”.
