To receive an update.


RESOLVED that delegated authority be granted to the Deputy Chief Executive, in consultation with the Cabinet Member with Portfolio for Planning to undertake additional community engagement under Regulation 18 as new evidence and information become available prior to the Council’s consideration of the Regulation 18 Draft Plan.


Reasons for the decision:

It will be important to undertake seamless community engagement as additional evidence emerges and options are refined. It is intended that this will take place in conjunction with the expert community engagement consultants to be engaged by the Council. Members will be kept informed as to these outcomes through the Local Plan Executive Group and the ongoing all member briefings.


Alternative options considered:

1)     To approve the recommendation.

2)     To require formal Cabinet approval for engagement on each of the evidence and background papers as they emerge.

3)     To undertake consultation without this formal decision to delegate authority or separate approvals referred to in paragraph 2.1 of the report.
