Draft Local Development Guide Consultation (2024)

15/05/2024 - Draft Local Development Guide Consultation (2024)

In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself and also the relevant Equality Impact Assessment, which was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Act.

Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision to: Delegate authority to the Executive Director: Economy, Environment and Infrastructure, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Environment and Planning to:

a) Launch, hold, and assess representations received during an 8-week consultation on the draft Local Development Guide (2024), from the 3 June 2024 to the 28 July 2024.

 b) Determine the need for a second consultation on the draft updated Local Development Guide (2024).

c) Launch, hold and assess representations received during a second 4-week consultation on the draft updated Local Development Guide (2024) in September 2024, if deemed appropriate.
