Report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport


3.1       The Lead Member considered a report by the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport.




3.2       The Lead Member RESOLVED to authorise the Director of Communities, Economy and Transport to sign the Kent soft sand Statement of Common Ground and review/update and agree to amendments to it as necessary.




3.3       The draft Kent Statement of Common Ground is a welcome collaborative attempt to identify common areas of agreement regarding supply issues of an important construction mineral. Apart from assisting Kent County Council in their Plan making process and Duty to Cooperate obligations, participating in the preparation of this joint statement on soft sand also helps East Sussex County Council provide an agreed evidence base for the Waste and Minerals Plan Review. The measures set out in the Statement do not conflict with existing policies and will assist in future working with the other Statement parties.
