The Executive Member for Assets and Strategic Development presented the report. 


The process had started in 2008 and following various consultations and Task & Finish Group meetings to ascertain the views of the Parishes and public, an Examination in Public had been held in July 2011.  The Inspector had asked for an additional consultation on parish boundaries and a further consultation on site allocation in Shipdham.  Following that consultation the Inspector had revised his opinion and the residents of Shipdham had got what they wanted.


The Inspector had made one slight change to the document.  Due to the Localism Bill now being law, the Council was no longer bound to adopt changes proposed by the Inspector, however in this case the change to the Settlement Boundary for Shropham was recommended for approval.


RESOLVED that the Breckland Site Specific Policies and Proposals DPD as submitted, including all of the amendments recommended in the Inspector’s Report, be adopted.
