Site Specific Policies & Proposals Development Plan Document 2001-2026 - Proposed Submission Document

The report sought Members’ approval to publish then submit the Site Specific Polices and Proposals Document including any Cabinet recommendation and those changes required to satisfy Habitats Regulations.  Publication and submission represents the last stage of document production and effectively represents the final opportunity for Breckland Council to shape the documents before it is considered at an examination in Public by a Government Inspector.  Following consultation earlier in 2010 on a detailed Site Specifics document, the proposed submission version of the document had been further updated for consideration by Cabinet to reflect those changes which were necessary as a result of previous responses received.  During preparation of the document there had been 8 public meetings of the Council’s LDF Task & Finish Group and 2 meetings of Cabinet.  This level of scrutiny, together with the considerable public consultation and evidence base which underpins the document, meant that the Council could publish and submit a sound document which would help manage development in the market towns and rural parts of Breckland for the next 15-16 years.
