Decisions:

Cabinet considered a report on the Site Allocations and Development Policies Document – Revised Publication Draft.

 

The Portfolio Holder for Planning gave a detailed introduction to the report.

 

Councillor S Gardiner, Vice-Chairman of the Strategic Planning Board, who chaired the meeting of the Board on 2nd October, thanked the Portfolio Holder for her detailed introduction to the report and asked if the text of her statement could be made available to all members of the Strategic Planning Board. Councillor Gardiner then reported the Board’s recommendations to Cabinet as follows:

 

(1)  The Revised Publication Draft version of the Site Allocations and Development Policies Document (Appendix 1), its Sustainability Appraisal (Appendices 2 and 2a) and Habitats Regulation Assessment (Appendix 3) be approved for publication so that representations could be made about them over a period of six weeks.

 

(2)  That alongside the documents listed in 2.1.1 of the report Cabinet be recommended to approve and publish the draft Plan’s supporting evidence base (listed in Appendix 6), including the draft Statement of Common Ground (Appendix 8).

 

(3)  That Cabinet consider the following matters:

 

(i)    The ‘soundness’ of the housing land supply position: whether the evidence supporting the proposed change in the revised publication draft SADPD to remove the previously proposed allocation of housing sites at LSCs was robust;

 

(ii)  The consistency of approach between the policies of Neighbourhood Plans and the SADPD to ensure there was no conflict, on matters such as settlement and town/village centre boundaries;

 

(iii)The need for safeguarded land in the SADPD, with reference to robust evidence, and with a particular focus on Bollington, Disley and Prestbury.
