Representations to draft Plan Strategy

Statement regarding Public Consultation on Representations and Counter Representation Period

In accordance with Regulation 17 of the Planning (Local Development Plan) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015, Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council is publishing the representations received during the statutory public consultation period for the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Local Development Plan 2032 draft Plan Strategy. 

The representations are available for inspection for eight weeks from 9am on Friday, 21 February 2020 to 5pm on Friday 17th April 2020 at the Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council Civic Headquarters, Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn, BT27 4RL during normal office hours. They are also available for inspection on the Council’s website at www.lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk/LDP.

In accordance with Regulation 18 of the above Regulations, counter representations may be made to any site-specific policy representation (which is defined in legislation as any representation which seeks a change to a development plan document by adding a site specific policy to the development plan document; or altering or deleting any site specific policy in the development plan document). Such counter representations must relate to a site-specific policy representation and must not propose any change to the draft Plan Strategy document.

Any counter representations must be received by Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council by 5pm on Friday 17th April 2020 and should clearly state the reference number of the representation that it relates to.


HOW TO RESPOND

Counter representations can be submitted using one of the following methods:

• online: using our Counter Representation Form

• by email: downloading the counter representation response form and emailing it to the Local Development Plan Team at: LDP@lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk or

• by mail: requesting a copy of our counter representation response form to be posted to you or collecting a hard copy from the Planning Unit, Civic Headquarters, Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn, BT27 4RL and returning it to the Local Development Plan team at the same address.

DATA PROTECTION

In accordance with the Data Protection Act 2018, Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council has a duty to protect any information we hold on you. The personal information you provide will only be used for the purpose of Plan Preparation and will not be shared with any third party unless law or regulation compels such a disclosure.

It should also be noted that in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Planning (Local Development Plan) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015, the Council must make a copy of any counter representation available for inspection. The Council is also required to submit the counter representations to the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) as they will be considered as part of the Independent Examination process. For further guidance on how we hold your information please visit the privacy section at www.lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk/information/privacy.  Counter representations will be treated in accordance with the LDP privacy notice which is available to view at www.lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk/LDP or is available on request by emailing LDP@lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk.

SOUNDNESS

Soundness involves testing the principles, content and preparation processes of the development plan against a list of key agreed criteria which relates to procedural, consistency, and coherence and effectiveness tests. Further detail on soundness is set out in the Department for Infrastructure’s (DFI) Development Plan Practice Note 06 Soundness.

As the main purpose of the Independent Examination is to determine whether the development plan document is ‘sound’, any person wishing to make a counter representation should do so on the basis of soundness.  

In accordance with DfI’s Development Plan Practice Note 09 Submission and Handling of Representations, it should also demonstrate how it meets the requirements of sustainability appraisal.


NEXT STEPS

Counter representations received during the statutory 8 week consultation period will in due course be published online and made available for inspection at the Council’s Civic Headquarters, Lagan Valley Island, Lisburn, BT27 4RL.

The Council will prepare a statement setting out the number of representations and counter representations and a summary of the main issued raised in accordance with Regulation 16(2) and Regulation 18(2) of the LDP Regulations respectively.

Representations and counter representations will be submitted to the Department for Infrastructure for Independent Examination, in additional to the supporting documents that the Council wants to have considered at Independent Examination, in accordance with Regulation 20(2) of the LDP Regulations.
