Notice of Motion concerning the Government's proposed planning reforms

21/09/2021 - Notice of Motion: Community involvement in planning

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




15.2     The Lead Member RESOLVED to recommend that the Council supports an amended version of the motion as set out in paragraph 3.1 for the reasons set out in the report.  




15.3     The County Council recognises that a planning system that sees local communities work with developers to plan and deliver new homes and related infrastructure is to the benefit of all. However, it is also recognised that there will be occasions when communities wish to oppose proposed new developments for laudable and sound planning reasons – a right to do this needs to be maintained.


15.4     The proposer and seconder of the motion agreed with the amendments to the motion.
