Henderson County 2020 Comprehensive Plan
What is a comprehensive plan amendment?
The CCP is intended to be a "living document"--one that is reviewed and revised periodically to ensure it remains valid and useful. In order to accommodate these anticipated changes to the CCP, the Board of Commissioners adopted an amendment process later incorporated into Chapter 200A, Land Development Code (LDC). The CCP was last reviewed and officially amended on April 7, 2008.
There are two types of comprehensive plan amendments:
change the meaning or intent of the plan, and likely involve a lengthy review process in order to fully assess the impact(s) of proposed amendments on the Comprehensive Plan's assumptions, principles, goals, objectives, recommendations and action steps. Substantive amendments may be initiated by the Board of Commissioners, Planning Board, County Manager or Planning Director.
do not change the meaning or intent of the plan, but instead correct errors of a technical or clerical nature; perhaps involving the addition of explanatory materials or graphics, or calling for the correction of typographical errors. Administrative amendments may be initiated by the Board of Commissioners, Planning Board, County Manager or Planning Director.
How are comprehensive plan amendments regulated?
Chapter 200A, Land Development Code (LDC), contains the standards, regulations and procedures necessary to amend the CCP. These regulations are found in Article XI (Review Processes and Procedures) Subpart D §200A-313 and Subpart H §200A-338.
