Before we start the meeting, I would just like to run through how things will proceed.

 

Item 6 on the agenda, on the Housing Delivery Test position, is a report for noting. Officers will present the report along with some supporting slides. Members will then have the opportunity to ask questions for clarification.

 

Item 7 is giving Members the opportunity to pre-scrutinise the consultation document for the Local Plan – Issues and Options. Any comments will be tabled at the Executive at Monday’s meeting.

 

Officers will take Members through the consultation document at Appendix A, page by page, asking for comments on each heading in turn. Members can recommend any; additions, amendments or deletions to the document and can suggest ideas on the content of the consultation.

 

At this stage I would also like to stress that it is not the purpose of the Panel to discuss specific development sites. We are asked only for our opinion around the questioning for the potential areas for new growth in the report.

 

Please avoid making any comments on specific development sites or existing planning applications.
