Additional documents:

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report of the Director of the Built Environment which sought comments on the proposed draft policies for the new Local Plan in relation to Housing and Safe and Secure City.

 

Members made suggestions as follows:

 

Housing

 

A flexible approach to ‘intermediate’ housing should be adopted where possible.

 

Reference to provision for ‘key workers’ to be included.

 

Reference to provision of adaptable housing for people with disabilities to be included.

 

Viability studies need to be more transparent and available to the public.

 

Reference to both residential/mixed development rather than residential only.

 

Undertake a review of the ‘clusters’ in relation to the location of new houses.

 

Insist on top quality housing in line with our standards for offices

 

 

Safe and Secure City

 

Collective approach to security is better than an individual approach and measures to enhance this when planning large developments and new buildings will be welcomed.

 

Design of security measures should enhance and not adversely impact the public realm.

 

Early engagement with the COL Police is essential.

 

 

RESOLVED – To agree the proposed draft policies in relation to Housing and Safe and Secure City.
