Report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport

 

Additional documents:

Minutes:

54.1     The Cabinet considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport

54.2     It was RESOLVED to:

            (1)        agree, subject to the endorsement of Brighton & Hove City Council and the South Downs National Park Authority, to the proposed approach to the Objections to the Pre-Submission Waste and Minerals Sites Plan and, to the submission of draft Main Modifications to the Inspector as included in Appendix 3, and thereby, alter the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme to reflect the revised programme; 

(2)        authorise the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport to agree, in consultation with Brighton & Hove City Council and South Downs National Park Authority, for subsequent public consultation, the draft Main Modifications and any further Main Modifications arising from the Public Examination necessary to make the Waste and Minerals Sites Plan sound, except where any subsequent change would involve a significant shift in the policy approach whereby this would be referred to Cabinet for approval prior to public consultation;

(3)        authorise the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport to make, if necessary, minor changes to the document arising from any views of the City Council and National Park Authority, or, arising from the Public Examination; and

(4)        note that all Main and Minor Modifications to the Plan will ultimately be presented to Cabinet and Full Council in due course as part of the Adoption of the Waste and Minerals Sites Plan

 

Reason

 

54.3     The analysis of the representations on the Pre-Submission Waste and Minerals Sites Plan (WMSP) should be noted.  Appraisal of the objections received indicates that the flexible approach to options to meet the requirements for additional waste recycling and recovery facilities identified in the Plan should be retained, but certain refinements and strengthening of the wording of Policies should be agreed for submission to the Public Examination. Main Modifications should be agreed to extend the Area of Search at Land at Burgess Road on Hastings fringes, withdraw the Whitworth Road Area of Search and Sackville Goods Yard Waste Site Allocation, and, strengthen some of the Policies in the WMSP. Authority was given to the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport to agree all the Main Modifications arising from the Public Examination for public consultation. The Minerals and Waste Development Scheme would be revised to indicate the new timetable for the document. All the Main and Minor Modifications to the Plan will ultimately be presented to Cabinet and Full Council in due course as part of the Adoption of the WMSP.
