Additional documents:

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report of the Director of the Built Environment

which sought comments on the second tranche of draft policies for the new Local Plan.

 

Members made several comments and suggestions as follows:

 

Climate Resilience and Flood Risk

 

Specific reference be made to ‘wind resilient’ as well as climate resilient.

 

Development and refurbishment should include more ‘green’ roofing.

 

Strategic Flood Risk Assessments should identify hotspots and vulnerable areas on the Local Plan Policies Map.

 

Sustainable drainage must apply to all buildings

 

Conditions should not be over complicated.

 

Historic Environment

 

‘Positively managing’ instead of ‘enhancing’

 

More positive language without changing the meaning

 

The best buildings should stand the test of time  - ‘valued’ and continued’ use as opposed to viable

 

Need to recognise the historical value and public interest as well as the beneficial use.

 

A number of comments were also submitted to officers in advance of the meeting from Mr Martinelli who was unable to be present as the meeting.

 

RESOLVED – To agree the proposed draft policies set out at Appendices 1 and 2 of this report.
