1.0  Introduction 

1.1  Section 61M(4) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, as applied to Neighbourhood

Plans by Section 38C(2)(c) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, enables a Local

Planning Authority to modify a Neighbourhood Plan they have made for the purpose of

correcting errors. The relevant qualifying body must consent to the modification. 

2.0 Background 

2.1 Nuthurst Neighbourhood Plan was ‘made’ on 22 October 2015. Nuthurst Parish Council, as

3.0 Modification


3.1 Policy 9 of the Nuthurst Neighbourhood Plan allocates land behind the White Horse,

Maplehurst for an enabling housing development scheme to bring about the refurbishment of

the White Horse Public House. Delineated as Site 9 on the existing Policies Map: Inset 2

(Please refer to Map A), the allocation includes the adjacent property, Nuthurst House, which

is NOT part of the allocated site. The Neighbourhood Plan (Policies Map: Inset Map 2) is

therefore being modified to remove this land from the allocation. Map B delineates the

correct boundary in relation to Policy 9: Land behind the White Horse, Maplehurst. The

modification is summarised in the Table below:
