This report summarises the content, scope and purpose of the draft Welborne Planning Obligations and Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document, with a view to thereafter commencing a public consultation exercise.
The Local Plan Part 3: The Welborne Publication Draft Plan introduced the Council’s intention to produce a Planning Obligations and Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to provide more detailed guidance for policies within the Welborne Plan.
The SPD sets out the Council’s approach for the use of planning obligations to secure satisfactory development and essential infrastructure for Welborne, including the delivery of affordable housing. It will inform the review of the Borough Council’s Community Infrastructure Levy charging schedule. The document will provide a useful Development Management tool against which planning applications can be assessed.
RESOLVED that the Executive approves that:
(a) the Draft Welborne Planning Obligations and Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document, as set out in Appendix A, be published for a six-week public consultation;
(b) the Director of Planning and Development, in consultation with the Executive Member for Planning and Development and Executive Member for Health and Housing, be authorised to make any necessary minor changes to the document, prior to publication, providing that these do not change the overall direction, shape or emphasis of the document, and do not raise any significant new issues; and
(c) the Draft Welborne Planning Obligations and Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document be endorsed as interim guidance to be afforded due weight in the determination of planning applications at Welborne site.
