MATTERS ARISING

Facilities for Public Cycle Parking (page 1) – A Member requested an update on what was being done to address the impact of development on WiFi coverage as alluded to at the last meeting of this Sub Committee. The Assistant Director (Planning Policy) reported that he had raised this matter with the City Corporation’s Strategic Infrastructure Advisor in the City Property Advisory Team (CPAT) who had, in turn, responded directly to the Member who had initially raised this matter. He undertook to circulate the update to the wider Sub Committee.

 

Outstanding Actions – Members requested that the Town Clerk introduce an Outstanding Actions report to be considered by the Sub Committee at all future meetings.

The Sub-Committee considered a report of the Director of the Built Environment outlining the key issues that arose from the public consultation on the draft Local Plan for Members’ discussion.

 

Officers clarified that the purpose of the report was two-fold and was intended to bring new members of this Sub-Committee up to speed on the background to the Local Plan and the public consultation around this but also to seek confirmation from the Sub-Committee in terms of how they might now want to proceed.

 

Officers went on to confirm that the comments received through the public consultation had been wide ranging with a range of opinions expressed throughout. Members were informed that, historically, the organisation’s Local Plan had not attracted a huge number of public responses however, on this occasion an extensive and wide-ranging programme of engagement was undertaken including letters to all City residential addresses, emails to approximately 4,600 business on the City Occupiers Database and various stakeholder and public consultation events. As a result, the number of responses received was more than double that when compared with the last iteration of the Local Plan. Officers went on to clarify that some of the responses received (from the City Property Association (CPA) for example) were representative of a much wider group.

 

Members were informed that the responses received demonstrated that there was no single, dominant theme and that there was general support for the approach outlined within the document. There had been a lot of comment on transport which was unsurprising given that both the Local Plan and Transport Strategy were designed to be complimentary of one another and had both been out for public consultation at the same time. Opinions had been expressed in terms of protected views, height and bulk with regard to building design, support had
