The Committee received a report of the Director of the Built Environment concerning the City of London’s response to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF), published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
Members welcomed the report and the work undertaken by officers, but commented that the response should include the scope for a greater role for London Councils in relation to the drive for housing delivery and inter-borough cooperation on planning matters.
To include within the response a new reference to the scope for a greater role for London Councils in relation to the drive for housing delivery and inter-borough cooperation on planning matters.
To agree the comments set out in paragraphs 4 to 20 of this report, and the detailed comments in Appendix 1, as the City Corporation’s response to the Government’s consultation on the draft National Planning Policy Framework.
18. Bank on Safety
The Sub-Committee received a report of the Director of the Built Environment providing an update on the monitoring and performance of the Bank on Safety scheme.
Officers reported that data was now available in relation to the first six to eight months of the scheme for the various monitoring criteria, and to date each of the agreed success criteria had either been met or exceeded.
Other related monitoring to assess impacts of the changes in the surrounding areas was also being undertaken, although it was important to note that not all could be directly attributed to the closure of Bank Junction.
In response to a question concerning data from the London Taxi Drivers Association (LTDA), officers advised that this would require validation before it could be included in the final decision-making report.
RESOLVED – That performance to date against each of the agreed success criteria be noted.
