Derriford and Seaton Area Action Plan

Our vision for Derriford and Seaton, as defined by the Core Strategy, is to create a sustainable mixed-use new urban centre at the heart of the north of Plymouth.

This Area Action Plan will set out land use policies and proposals to create a new centre for northern Plymouth at Derriford. We aim to deliver a diverse mix of commercial and community uses; secure prosperity by developing key employment sites; provide a range of quality homes; create a new district shopping centre; improve transport connections; create a strong urban form with a high quality environment; enable public access to and enjoyment of natural green spaces; making Derriford the city's northern 'gateway'.

Council's proposed modifications to the submitted plan

This schedule sets out the amendments which are proposed to be made to the submitted Derriford and Seaton Area Action Plan as a result of discussions leading up to and at the examination hearings. This schedule was sent to the Inspector on 3 April 2013. The Inspector's report, once issued, will set out whether or not these amendments are appropriate and should be taken forward to an adopted Area Action Plan. This isn't a consultation. Should, in due course, main modifications be required to the plan to ensure soundness then further formal consultation may be required.

As part of Plymouth's Local Development Framework (LDF), Plymouth City Council submitted the Derriford and Seaton Area Action Plan to the Secretary of State on 21 December 2012.

This followed a six week consultation period on the revised pre-submission draft AAP (which took place between 9 July and 20 August 2012) and a further six week consultation period on an alternative development site proposal (put forward by Sutton Harbour Holdings) and an addendum to the Area Action Plan's sustainability appraisal (which took place between 26 October and 7 December 2012). The Area Action Plan will now be subject to a public examination by an independent Planning Inspector.

Copies of all the representations made during these consultation stages have been sent to the Planning Inspectorate and can be viewed on the consultation portal.

The Derriford and Seaton Area Action Plan (submission version), together with the sustainability appraisal, the Regulation 22 consultation statement, all representations and supporting documents may be viewed during normal office hours at the Civic Centre, Royal Parade, Plymouth. You are advised to telephone 01752 304243 in advance, in order to ensure that all documents are ready for your viewing on arrival. In addition, a copy of the Area Action Plan (submission version), the sustainability appraisal and the Regulation 22 consultation statement can be viewed at the Council's offices at Windsor House.

The Council has considered all of the comments received during the superseded pre-submission consultation and a report which summarises these comments can be viewed below. You can view the superseded pre-submission Area Action Plan and the comments that were made in full on the Council's consultation portal.

During the superseded pre-submission consultation a number of helpful comments were received that have improved the plan and questions were raised by stakeholders which required the preparation of further evidence base studies to inform the Area Action Plan. These evidence base documents can be viewed alongside the timetable for preparing the Derriford and Seaton Area Action Plan on the revised pre-submission section below.

During the revised pre-submission Area Action Plan consultation, the Local Planning Authority received representations identifying the land at Plymouth Airport as an alternative development site to the Local Planning Authority. The Council consulted on these representations between 26 October and December 2012, in accordance with advice from the Planning Inspectorate. At this time, the Council also took the opportunity to publish and consult upon a sustainability appraisal addendum report. This report supports the revised pre-submission Area Action Plan and describes the reasonable alternatives that have been appraised during the Area Action Plan process that have informed the preparation of this development plan document.

The report was published to 'tell the story' of how the preferred approach has been reached and to provide an opportunity for those with an interest in the Area Action Plan to make their views known on the appraisal of these alternatives prior to finalisation of the plan and its formal submission for independent public examination. The Council have now registered all of the representations received during these consultations and submitted them, alongside the Derriford and Seaton Area Action Plan, to the Secretary of State on 21 December 2012 for an independent examination. For the latest information on the Derriford and Seaton Area Action Plan, view the submitted section.
