Herefordshire Council

Below are the Regulation 26 (Preferred Options stage) and 28 (Submission stage) responses made by the Government Office for the West Midlands to Herefordshire Council Development Plan Documents. These responses were made under The Town and Country Planning (Local Development) (England) Regulations 2004.

Extension of ‘Saved Policies’ beyond the three-year period

The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 provides for the saving of policies in adopted or approved local, structure and unitary development plans for a period of 3 years while progress is made on the preparation of Local Development Frameworks.  Policies in development plans which were adopted or approved at the commencement date (28 September 2004) expired on 27 September 2007 unless the Secretary of State made a direction to extend such policies beyond that date.  Policies in those development plans which were adopted after 28 September 2004 are operative for 3 years from the date of adotion.  Planning authorities who wish to save policies beyond three years must also obtain a Direction from the Secretary of State to save those policies. This must be done six months before the policies are due to expire.

The Directions that have been made by the Secretary of State in relation to Herefordshire Council's UDP are set out below.
