Additional documents:


The Planning Policy Officer introduced the report that outlined the progress made on the local plan’s implementation, review and the engagement arising from the duty to cooperate. The period covered was 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020, with the progress made since then to be included in the next authority monitoring report.


As a result of the reduction in retail and employment space, the approach to these would be reviewed within the current local plan review. Two of the key highway schemes would not be delivered in time, with all schemes to be continually monitored.


The Committee were informed that 134 dwellings had been completed within the time period, which led to a shortfall of 206 against the 9-year target of 7947 since the local plan’s adoption.


Several Members highlighted the importance of providing different types of housing across the borough.


RESOLVED: That the report be noted.
