The Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Managed Growth received a deputation from Mrs J McGarry in respect of the Draft Local Plan- Summary of Representations Report. This report, together with a Supplementary Report on the Draft Local Plan –Summary of Representations was considered at agenda item 6 at this Decision Session.

 

Mrs McGarry, in summary, advised the Decision Session that she believed that it was inappropriate and wrong that sites 2 (Frog Lane) and 3 (Windmill Lane) should be allocated for development. This was on the basis that the evidence base supporting the Local Plan Review was either flawed or had been used inappropriately. Mrs McGarry, advised  that there were more appropriate sites that should be considered for allocation instead of sites 2 and 3.These other sites included site 240 ( promoted by the Tyler Parkes Partnership) and other brownfield sites.  Mrs McGarry’s other detailed comments were set out in a written statement that she presented to the Decision Session.

The Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Managed Growth advised that the full version of Mrs McGarrys  written statement would be included in the representations received in respect of the Draft Local Plan-Summary of Representations document.
