Minutes:

Cllr Gillies moved, and Cllr Aspdenseconded, the following recommendations made by the Executive at their meeting on 8 May on the City of York Submission Draft Local Plan (Publication Draft), as contained in the report at Item 3 on the agenda:

 

“Recommended:          (i)      That Council approve the Submission Draft

Local Plan (Publication Draft), as attached at Annex A to the report, the Policies Map as attached at Annex B to the report, and the Schedule of minor modifications as attached at Annex G to the report, for submission to the Secretary of State for examination.

 

Reason:              So that an NPPF compliant Local Plan can be progressed in accordance with the council’s Local Development Scheme.

 

(ii)      That authority be delegated to the Director of Economy and Place, in consultation with the Executive Leader and the Executive Member for Economic Development and Community Engagement, to make non-substantive editorial changes to the Submission Draft and other supporting documents submitted alongside the Plan.

 

Reason:     So that an NPPF compliant Local Plan can be progressed.

 

(iii)     That the Director of Economy and Place be authorised to ask the examining Inspector to recommend modifications where necessary under Section 20(7C) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

 

Reason:     So that an NPPF compliant Local Plan can be progressed.

 

(iv)    That the Director of Economy and Place, in consultation with the Executive Leader and the Executive Member for Economic Development and Community Engagement, be authorised to agree any further or revised responses, or proposed changes, during the examination process, prior to consultation and a final decision on adoption.

 

Reason:     So that an NPPF compliant Local Plan can be progressed.”

 

During a full debate, Members expressed views both for and against the draft plan.  Broadly speaking, those in favour considered it a sound and balanced plan which, although not perfect, was preferable to having a solution imposed by the government, while those against considered it unsound on the grounds that it did not address a lack of affordable housing in the city or provide an adequate infrastructure for development.

 

In accordance with Standing Order 34.1, a named vote was then taken of those Members present, with the following result:
