Approval of Bracknell Forest Council response to government consultation on permitted development rights, change of use and speeding up planning applications for public service infrastructure.
The Executive Member for Planning and Transport agrees the content of Bracknell Forest Council’s response to the Government’s consultation on ‘Supporting housing delivery and public service infrastructure’ as set out in Appendix A of the Director :Place, Planning and Regeneration’s report.
It is considered necessary for the Council to respond to the consultation since it contains proposals that could have implications for future planning policy including the viability of town centres and provision of sufficient employment land. It could also have an impact on the consideration of planning applications and have resource implications for the operation of the planning department.
The alternative option is for the Council not to respond to the consultation. However, this would mean that the Council would lose the opportunity to influence possible changes in national legislation, planning policy and guidance.
