To obtain approval to submit the M5J10
Development Consent Order to the Planning Inspectorate, to progress
planning permission and compulsory acquisition powers.
Cllr David Gray, Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning, sought approval to submit the M5 Junction 10 (M5J10) Development Consent Order (DCO) to the Planning Inspectorate and to progress planning permission and compulsory acquisition powers.
Members noted an inaccuracy to paragraph 19 of the decision report. Cllr Gray advised that the information was not relevant to the decision being considered by Cabinet at this meeting and, as such, had been excluded from the report. For clarification, Cllr Gray referred members to the cabinet decision report considered at the cabinet meeting on 22 July 2020; ‘M5J10 Improvement Scheme; Commitment to use Compulsory Purchase Powers’, and subsequent approval by Cabinet to exercise these powers, if required, alongside continued negotiated settlement. Cllr Gray assured members all landowners impacted by the scheme had been part of a comprehensive consultation and engagement process that would remain ongoing throughout the DCO process.
Subject to clarification of the inaccuracy to paragraph 19 above and having considered all of the information, Cabinet noted the report and
1) Approve the submission of an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) for planning permission to construct the M5 Junction 10 Improvements Scheme (including powers of compulsory acquisition and any other powers required to facilitate the Scheme).
2) Delegate authority to Executive Director of Economy, Environment and Infrastructure in consultation with Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning to implement the programme as set out in paragraph 24 of this report.
