The forum was chaired by Chris McGuire with presentations delivered by Director of Planning and Development for Chorley and South Ribble, Jonathan Noad, and Director of Development and Housing for Preston, Chris Hayward. Presentations that were previously presented to the Central Lancashire Strategic Planning Joint Advisory Committee were delivered on density, the DLP Housing Study, Housing Needs and Demand. Discussions were held and questions were asked, which included but were not limited to the housing need, proposed numbers, distribution approach and justification for Central Lancashire.

 

Developers were mindful that South Ribble and Chorley were developing an aging population and queried how this, and other demographical information would impact the Local Plan.

Minutes:

The Chair, Councillor Alistair Bradley read the following statement to the committee.

 

“Officers ambitiously hoped to be in a position to provide a detailed update as to the land supply position for housing and employment across Central Lancashire for the new period (hence the reason for a verbal item). However, the work has been more complicated than first thought and the work required to map the sites is very specialist requiring external support, therefore once ready, it will be reported locally as part of the work leading up to the Preferred Options.”
