Appointment of Consultants to prepare an Infrastructure Development Plan for the Central Lancashire Local Plan and provide additional viability support through development of a Topic Paper and Policies for the Local Plan

04/04/2022 - Appointment of Consultants to prepare an Infrastructure Development Plan for the Central Lancashire Local Plan and provide additional viability support through development of a Topic Paper and Policies for the Local Plan

Recommendations approved.

 

Reasons for recommendations:

This work is needed to enable the Local Plan work to progress to Preferred Options.

 

Alternative options considered and rejected:

1.    To continue without the preparation of an IDP or specialist support in policy development on infrastructure and viability. This was rejected as the IDP is a fundamental part of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) process and is required to understand what infrastructure needs are required to be funded via developments coming forward though the Local Plan.

 

2.    Without such a document in place, we would not be able to secure funding for key infrastructure needs over the plan period.
