Further to Minute No. 147, 8th February 2017, the Director of City Development submitted a report which sought approval to publish detailed revisions to the policies which were the subject of the Core Strategy Selective Review (CSSR) for the purposes of a six week of consultation exercise.
In presenting the report to the Board it was clarified that Members were being recommended to refer the Publication Draft to Scrutiny Board (Infrastructure and Investment), and not Scrutiny Board (City Development), as detailed within the submitted report.
Responding to a Member’s enquiry, the Board noted that in terms of approximate timescales, it was expected that a revised housing requirement figure for Leeds would be adopted into the Core Strategy by Spring 2019.
Also in response to a Member’s enquiry, the Board was provided with further information on the actions being taken to maximise the delivery of affordable housing in Leeds, with specific reference to Leeds’ performance when compared to the data within a report published by Shelter in November 2017.
In addition, regarding a Member’s reference to the potential provision of more accommodation for older people in the city centre, it was noted that the ambition was to deliver a wider mix of accommodation in the city centre, which included provision for older people.
The Board extended its thanks to Development Plan Panel for the work it had undertaken to help progress the development of the CSSR to its current position.
(a) That the proposed revised Publication Draft policies and supporting paragraphs of the Core Strategy Selective Review, as set out within Appendix 1 and the Sustainability Appraisal as set out in Appendix 3 to the submitted report, be endorsed;
(b) That a 6 week consultation exercise on the proposed revised Publication Draft policies and supporting paragraphs of the Core Strategy Selective Review, as set out within Appendix 1 and the Sustainability Appraisal as set out in Appendix 3 to the submitted report, be approved;
(c) That the additional draft supporting documents listed in paragraph 7.0 of the submitted report, including background evidence on the Council’s website, be noted;
(d) That the necessary authority be delegated to the Chief Planning Officer in consultation with the relevant Executive Member to make factual and other minor changes to the proposed consultation material;
(e) That further to the correction to the report, as referenced above, the Publication Draft Plan be referred to the Scrutiny Board (Infrastructure and Investment) in line with the Budget and Policy Framework Procedure Rules, following the public consultation;
(f) That it be noted that the responsible officer for the delivery of the resolutions (above) is the Head of Strategic Planning.
(Under the provisions of Council Procedure Rule 16.5, Councillors A Carter and Golton both required it to recorded that they respectively abstained from voting on the decisions referred to within this minute)
(The matters referred to within this minute, given that they were decisions being made in accordance with the Budget and Policy Framework Procedure Rules, were not eligible for Call In, as Executive and Decision Making Procedure Rule 5.1.2 states that the power to Call In decisions does not extend to those decisions being made in accordance with the Budget and Policy Framework Procedure Rules)
