Emma Curle (Strategic Head of Place Making and Planning) attended the meeting to provide a brief presentation on the proposed approach to engaging with communities and stakeholders as the Local Plan was developed and seeking input on further opportunities to engage with local communities.


The following comments were made/issues raised:


·         Members suggested that members of the community who had a learning disability, their families and support networks should specifically be consulted as part of the Local Plan engagement.

·         In response to a Member’s question, the Committee was advised that the majority of the consultations would take place ‘virtually’ online, but that ‘face to face’ meetings could also take place if this proved necessary.

·         The Worker Bee Markets which were held in the Borough could also prove to be a useful location for undertaking the consultation.


RESOLVED – That Emma Curle be thanked for her attendance and presentation.
