Decision details

Abbey Estate: Joint Working with Flagship Group

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

Members approve the Memorandum of Understanding between Flagship Group, Norfolk County Council and Breckland Council.

Decision:

The Memorandum of Understanding between Flagship Group, Norfolk County Council and Breckland Council be approved.

Reasons for the decision:

The proposal is considered to align closely with Breckland Council’s strategic vision and priorities for the five years 2019 – 2023 as agreed in the Corporate Plan.  The rationale behind the proposal is to improve the physical, environmental and community elements of the estate in a manner agreed with the local community.

Alternative options considered:

1.     Approve the Memorandum of Understanding.

2.     Do not approve the proposal, as Norfolk County Council and Flagship Group could develop the scheme between themselves without Breckland.  If this route was taken, Breckland Council would remain a statutory consultee on any planning application.

3.     Do nothing.
