Minutes:

The Executive Member for Planning Policy, Councillor Biggs, introduced the report. Following the adoption of the Development Management Plan (DMP) in September 2019, four of the Council’s SPDs/ SPGs had been revised to reflect changes in national and local planning policy.

In response to a question from a Visiting Member, the Director of Place Services clarified that the Affordable Housing SPD provided a means to consider the cumulative impact of the sub-division of development sites.
