Following the application to the High Court, a Court Order has quashed paragraph 5.2.8 in the Local Plan, which relates to the designation of land as Local Green Space (LGS).

The Court Order requires the Council to publish the Inspector’s recommended change to paragraph 5.2.8, as well as the associated addendum to the sustainability appraisal as a proposed Main Modification to the submitted Local Plan and carry out a 6 week consultation.  Full details of the modification, including the schedule of the proposed change and an explanation of its effect, are set out in the Local Plan – Consultation on Proposed Main Modification in respect of the LGS designation at Udney Park Playing Fields.

Copies of the proposed Main Modification consultation document and Sustainability Appraisal addendum are available at the Civic Centre, 44 York Street, Twickenham, TW1 3BZ and in the Borough’s main libraries.

This consultation is only on this proposed change and not on other aspects of the plan.  It does not provide the opportunity to raise other potential sites in the borough for designation as LGS or any other matters.  If you wish to make representations on the above Main Modification only, please send us your response by 5pm on 5 April 2019.
