Minutes:

Members considered a report which asked them to approve, for public consultation purposes, the draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) and draft Consultation Plan for the former British Sugar / Manor School sites, taking account of the recommendations and amendments of the Local Development Framework (LDF) Working Group.

 

In March 2010, Members had agreed that the planning framework for York Northwest would be taken forward within the Core Strategy as a ‘zone of change’, with York Central and the former British Sugar / Manor School sites identified as strategic sites for which an SPD would be prepared.  The report outlined subsequent progress on the four key areas of work comprising this planning approach.  The consultation draft of the SPD was attached as Appendix 4 and the recommendations of the LDF Working Group, who had considered the report at their meeting on 25 October 2010, were attached as Appendix 9.  The remaining appendices to the report had been made available to view on-line and / or on request from the York Northwest team.

 

Members were invited either to approve the draft SPD (as amended by the LDF Working Group) for public consultation (Option 1) or to request changes to the draft and ask that an amended version be brought back to the LDF Working Group and Executive (Option 2).

 

Having noted the comments of the Labour Group Spokespersons on this item, it was
