Seeking authority to carry out consultation on
new sites that have ermerged through the recent consultation on the
draft borough local plan.
i) the principle of public consultation on Land at Hewlett Packard, Cain
Road, Binfield and Land at 3M, Cain Road, Binfield (see Appendix A of Director of Environment, Culture and Communities report) for
a period of three weeks in September 2018 is agreed.
ii) the format and content of material produced for the consultation be
approved by the Chief Officer: Planning, Transport and Countryside in
consultation with the Executive Member for Planning and Transport.
The Regulations require that a local plan is prepared in consultation with the local community and other stakeholders. The proposed consultation will facilitate engagement and comments received will help inform sites included in the Submission BFLP.
It is important that the Submission BFLP is based on robust evidence and takes account of emerging national policy, in order to be found ‘sound’.
The option of not consulting on the new sites would leave the Council vulnerable at examination stage when stakeholders have the opportunity to pursue concerns that they have about which sites have been included with an independent inspector whose role is to assess a plan.
Reason Key: Affects more than 1 ward;
Wards Affected: (All Wards);
Financial Impact: Consultation will be funded from within the Local Development Framework budget.
Subject to Urgent Proceedings: No
Making Representations: In writing to the Director of Environment, Culture and Communities.
