Breckland Local Development Framework: Site Specifics Policies and Proposals Development Plan Document: Issues and Options Consultation - Summer 2008

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

To consider and approve the Site Specifics Policies and Proposals Issues and Options document for consultation during the summer 2008.

Decision:

That the Breckland Local Development Framework: Site Specifics Policies and Proposals Development Plan Document: Issues and Options Consultation – Summer 2008 be approved, subject to the recommended amendments as endorsed by the Policy Development and Review Panel 1 and subject to any final minor editing by the Planning Policy Team in liaison with the Executive Member.

Reasons for the decision:

Options 1 or 2 are recommended as it is important that progress is made on the Site Specifics document without delay.  The document has been soundly produced, meeting all necessary regulations and planning advice at this stage.  Any delay in publication could result in a lack of confidence in the process from key stakeholders and reduce the potential to significantly progress this area if work in advance of Local Government Review in Norfolk.

Alternative options considered:

1)           Approve the document, subject to final adjustments by the Planning Policy Team in liaison with the Executive Member, and issue the document for consultation in late June for 12 weeks.

 

2)           As option 1 above, but with the addition/deletion of sections or amendments to the text or questions.

 

3)           Not approve the document and ask for a revised version to be brought back to a combination of future Panel 1 and Cabinet meetings in due course.
