RECORD OF DECISION OF THE Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee

 

 

 

 

Decision Made:

Tuesday 19 January 2016

 

Urgent Item - Report of the Head of Planning and Development - Maidstone Borough Local Plan - Publication (Regulation 19)

 

 

Issue for decision

 

Since the meeting of the Committee on 13 January 2016, officers scrutinised every single development allocation policy.  It was found that many of the amendments were subject to approved Section 106 agreements, either fully signed and sealed or in a draft negotiated form following Heads of Terms agreed by way of a clear resolution of the Planning Committee and therefore have superseded the applicable site specific policy criteria.  This meant, therefore, that the decision made on 13 January 2016 had to be amended to include reference to this change.

 

Decision made

 

That, subject to the reclassification of Coxheath as a Larger Village and the insertion of the Indicative Housing Trajectory, Council are recommended to approve the Maidstone Borough Local Plan 2016 (attached as Appendix A of the report to the Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee dated 13 January 2016, revised to reflect (i) insertion of the words ‘community and’ at line 1 of Policy H1 paragraph 2 on page 78, before the word ‘strategic’; and (ii) any previously agreed site-specific infrastructure criterion not covered by (i) which were agreed by the Strategic Planning, Sustainability and Transportation Committee or its decision making predecessor and, (iii) except where decisions or resolutions of the Planning Committee and/or the Planning Referrals Committee already supersede (i) and (ii)) for Publication (Regulation 19) and Submission to the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government (Regulation 22) for examination under Section 20 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.
