Additional documents:


Mr Egerton informed the Committee that Loose Parish was designated as a Neighbourhood Area in 2013 under the Neighbourhood Planning Act.  Loose was consulting on the submission version of the Neighbourhood Plan.  Mr Egerton stated that Loose had afforded Officers the opportunity to comment informally on the plan and had responded positively to the suggestions that had been made.


The Committee congratulated Loose on the successful work on the Neighbourhood Plan, and commented that it was positive to see MBC supporting this process effectively.


The Committee commented that land ownership issues were not within the remit of the Committee and that this aspect should therefore be referred to the Policy and Resources Committee.  There was a need to ensure that a response was submitted before the deadline of 14 December 2018.




1.  The Loose Neighbourhood Plan be supported and an appropriate response be made by the Head of Planning and Development.


Voting: Unanimous


2.  A reference be made to the Policy and Resources Committee on 5 December 2018 regarding the Council’s response to the Loose Neighbourhood Plan Consultation, with respect to land ownership issues.
