Executive Leader's Announcements

Minutes:

Daedalus Gate Guardian

 

The Executive Leader announced that the Executive has previously agreed in principle to erect a large and distinctive piece of art work known as a ‘Gate Guardian’ at Daedalus.  The procurement of a skilled contractor to design, build and install a Gate Guardian at Daedalus will begin this month.  Experience of creating large scale art projects and the artistic merit of proposals will form important elements of the initial assessment.  A number of preferred designs will be presented for a public vote in the spring, with the winning design installed by summer 2020.

 

75th Anniversary of D-Day

 

The Executive Leader announced that, following a successful community event that attracted over 2,500 visitors to commemorate the 100th anniversary of flying at Daedalus, the Council is planning a second event at Daedalus to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

 

The event will take place over two days, Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June.  It will provide an opportunity for people to visit the airfield, see aircraft landing and taking off, view a range of static aircraft and participate in a community event with many attractions and activities.

 

A further report will be presented to the March Executive with more details.

 

Local Plan

 

The Executive Leader announced that further to his announcement at the Executive meeting on 05 November 2018, he would like to provide an update on the progression of the Local Plan.  Parties were reminded that at that meeting, the Executive agreed to the Council’s response to the Government’s ‘Technical consultation on updates to national planning policy and guidance’ which included proposed changes to local housing need assessment and housing land supply.  Unfortunately, the Government has not yet made any announcement in relation to the introduction of these changes, or disregard or not of ONS figures, which means that there remains continued uncertainty as to the housing requirement that the Council should be planning for through the Local Plan.  Regardless of these uncertainties, it is considered important the Council has a clear and transparent timetable for the preparation of the Local Plan and officers have therefore been asked to present a report providing an updated Local Development Scheme to the March meeting of the Executive.
