Report of the Director of the Built Environment.
The Committee received a report of the Director of the Built Environment setting out the progress made during Q1 of the 2020/21 Departmental Business Plan.
A Member highlighted the refence to another round of consultation on the City Plan 2036 taking place in Autumn 2020 within the report and sought clarity around when this would commence and how long it would run for. Officers reported that matters discussed at today’s meeting such as COVID recovery, changing growth predictions and the Planning Reform meant that some work was needed to refine and revise the document. Officers intended to bring a process report back to this Committee in late October setting out the timetable for revision. A series of Local Plans Sub Committee meetings would then be required to consider any changes ahead of them coming back to this Committee, to the Policy and Resources Committee and, ultimately, the Court of Common Council for approval. Once this cycle had been completed, consultation would then commence on the revised version of the Plan in early 2021.
RESOLVED – That Members note the report and appendices.
