Reporting Person – Giorgio Framalicco
The Executive received a report which sought approval for the Outlook, Amenity and Daylight Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to be published for public engagement and consultation. It was noted that the current SPD had been adopted in 2008 and was being reviewed to bring it up to date to reflect changes in national policy and policies of the development plan. The Executive was advised that, when the SPD was adopted, it would be a material consideration in determining planning applications and other planning decisions. Councillor Elson drew attention to the amendments suggested by the Local Development Framework Working Group at its meeting on 22 July 2021.
Following a request for the consultation documents to highlight what had been changed, the Portfolio Holder agreed to speak to Officers to see if that could be incorporated.
That (i) the contents of the proposed revision to the Outlook, Amenity and Daylight Supplementary Planning Document be noted and approved for public engagement and consultation between September 2021 and November 2021; and
(ii) delegated authority be given to the Director of Planning, in consultation with the Portfolio Holder for Planning, to approve amendments to the draft Outlook, Amenity and Daylight SPD to reflect new information before it is published for community engagement and consultation.
Reason: To ensure that the Outlook, Amenity and Daylight SPD continues to be up to date for the purposes of managing development across the Borough.
