The Committee considered the report presented by the Director – Planning & Growth relating to the progress made towards the delivery of the Plan Review in relation to the Allocations and Development Management Policies and also which sought approval to consult in the summer on an Allocations & Development Management Options Report. The report also sought approval to update the Plan Review Timetable to reflect the aforementioned approach.
It was reported that the delay to the preparation of the Allocations & Development Management element of the Plan Review had largely been caused by the imposition of the lockdown in response to the pandemic and ongoing difficulties in relation to the identification of potential sites to accommodate additional gypsy and traveller pitches. It was further reported that the evidence base supporting the Plan Review had been substantially completed and that the new public stage of the process – the Allocations & Development Management Options Report consultation – should take place in the summer 2021. A table setting out the timetable for the proposed LDF Plan Review was provided at paragraph 4.1.
AGREED (unanimously) that:
(a) the progress set out in the report towards producing the Allocations & Development Management Options Report be noted;
(b) the proposed amended timetable as set out at paragraph 4.1 be adopted and comes into force on 17 June 2021; and
(c) the Director – Planning & Growth be given delegated authority to finalise and publish for consultation the Allocations & Development Management Options Report following consultation with relevant Ward Members as set out in paragraph 3.3, together with the Chairman, Vice Chairman and Opposition Spokesperson of this Committee and the Members of the Local Development Framework Task Group.
