Minutes:

The Assistant Director of Planning and Public Protection presented a report which set out the recommendations of the Examiner on the Huntington Neighbourhood Plan, together with proposed additional officer modifications on the Green Belt, and sought approval for the amended Plan to proceed to a referendum. If agreed, the referendum would take place on or before 10 June 2021.

 

The Examiner’s Report was attached at Annex A, along with consultation and responses on proposed modifications to the Green Belt Policy in the Plan (Annexes B and C) the Decision Statement, including the Council’s proposed response to the Examiner’s recommended modifications to the Plan (Annex D) and the draft version of the Plan for submission (Annex E).  The Local Plan Working Group had considered these documents at their meeting on 16 March.

 

It was recommended that the Examiner’s modifications be accepted, as they made the Plan more robust and enabled it to meet the Basic Conditions.  A decision to reject the modifications could only be made on the specific grounds set out in paragraph 39 of the report. 

 

Resolved:  (i)      That the Examiner’s modifications, the Examiner’s consequential minor modifications and the proposed additional Green Belt modifications to the Huntington Neighbourhood Plan, as annexed to the report, be approved.

 

                   (ii)      That it be agreed that, subject to those modifications, the Plan meets the Basic Conditions and other legislative requirements.

 

                   (iii)     That the Plan, as amended, proceed to a local referendum based on the geographic boundary of the parish of Huntington, as recommended by the Examiner.
