Housing and Planning Bill pdf icon PDF 144 KB

Report attached.

Minutes:

Mike Molyneux introduced the report on the provisions of the Housing and Planning Bill and the potential implications for the delivery of local planning policies in Central Lancashire. He stated that one of the implications was that if developers provided starter homes to be sold at a discount of at least 20% of the market value, it would be difficult for developers to offer the purchaser any further discounts.  He also mentioned that the bill promoted developing brownfield sites within the green belt which could have an implication mainly for Chorley and South Ribble.

 

Jenni Moore referred to the Local Development Orders and that councils should not underestimate the amount of work involved.  She suggested that a model order could be produced.

 

UNANIMOUSLY RESOLVED:

That the report be noted.

Annual Monitoring Report pdf icon PDF 237 KB

Report attached.

Minutes:

Mike Molyneux introduced a report on the monitoring of the delivery of key performance indicators as set out in the Central Lancashire Core Strategy.

 

Steven Brown referred to page 4 of the Annual Monitoring Report and in particular the Value of Developer Contributions Collected figure for South Ribble and that this was actually zero.  However, he indicated that £195,000 had been collected since April 2015.

 

Jonathan Noad referred to the Employment Land Take-Up for South Ribble and that although the figure was zero the position was healthy as there had been activity in the borough since April 2015.

 

Councillor Hughes questioned the monitoring of road traffic volume for the A6 South Ribble Way, South of A582 Lostock Hall, Bamber Bridge and that the report indicated that the location would no longer be monitored.  Marcus Hudson reassured the councillor that as this was a prominent location they would be still be taking a great deal of interest in the site.

 

Councillor Bradley also questioned the monitoring of road traffic volume for the B5256 Sheep Hill Lane, East of Cuerden Valley Park, Clayton-le-Woods and that he was surprised that the figure for 2015 had significantly reduced.  He was informed that this was the data recorded for that location.

 

UNANIMOUSLY RESOLVED:

That the report be noted.
