Integrated Development Programme Local Investment Plan

The report sought Council’s approval to publish the Authority’s inaugural Integrated Development Plan and Local Investment Plan (IDP/LIP) document (see Appendix A of the report).  The document was, in summary, a means of prioritising infrastructure investment and delivery aligned to the Council’s adopted Housing, Economic and Planning Strategies as well as reflecting the funding opportunities available going forward and the asset investment activities of utility companies within the area.


The final document had been prepared in liaison with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) in order to meet its requirements for a Local Investment Plan (LIP).  Future HCA funding going forward would be dependent on the agreement of the LIP and consequently the document had been through a consultation process with the HCA including peer review.


The final document also met the requirements of an Integrated Development Plan which was principally an Infrastructure Planning document designed to underpin economic development investment.  Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) and Regional Growth Fund (RGF) proposals were required to promote those projects identified in IDP/LIP documents in their area.


The adopted IDP/LIP document was a delivery document.  It would provide a focus for Council investment and activity as well as influencing the activities of others to ensure that a set of deliverable local Council priorities were taken forward as part of a “single conversation” with key partners.  The document was a ‘live’ document with a recommendation that it be reviewed on an annual basis.
