1 Apologies

  • George and Mary Doman.

2 Issues and Options Consultation Update

  • The consultation had run for the month of November and 35 members of the public had attended the consultation drop-in.
  • 22 detailed response forms had been returned and these responses had been summarised in a report that had been circulated and was on the website.
  • The responses had been incorporated into the Preferred Options First Draft Plan, which had been circulated to the working group for consideration.
  • Louise advised having a further informal consultation on the preferred options before going to the Regulation 14 consultation.
  • If a Call for Sites exercise was to be undertaken, this should be done prior to the next consultation taking place so that it can be included.

3 Preferred Options First Draft Plan

  • It was agreed to allocate sections for working group members to proof read and provide any additional information required. The following were proposed.
  • Housing – Roger Beard and Ian Clelland
  • Environment – John Barnes (with assistance from Roger Beard if required)
  • Business and the Local Economy – Pete Hince and ask Felicity Griffiths if she will assist
  • Protecting Local Community Facilities – Ask George and Mary Doman if they would be happy to look at this again (Roger Beard willing to assist)
  • Transport and Infrastructure – Ask Paul Cobb if he will assist
  • Flooding – Ask Elliot Burman and Pat Corcoran if they will assist
  • The proposed Local Green Spaces to protect were The Bower, Shenmore, The Glebe Field, Madley Moat and the Kettle Ponds. These were marked on a map for Louise to digitise for inclusion.

4 Actions

  • Extraordinary parish council meeting to take place on Tuesday 24th January 2017 to consider whether to undertake a Call for Sites, the Preferred Options First Draft Plan, stage payment to Kirkwells and the end of grant report for the Neighbourhood Planning Grant received.
  • Proposed that a deadline of the end of February be set for amendments and additions to the first draft plan.
  • The working group propose that a Call for Sites exercise be undertaken as the majority of responses to the consultation supported this course of action and the working group believe it offers a more robust Neighbourhood Plan. The Call for Sites process could commence whilst the revisions are being undertaken to the draft plan.

5 Date of next meeting
• To be confirmed.
