Officer Decisions

Head of Planning, Transportation and Environment - Dave Black

Summary of Matter or Issue Requiring Decision:

Publication of new Monitoring and Enforcement Plan

Decision Taken:

Approve (following agreement of Chair of Development Management Committee).

Summary of Reason(s) for Decision Taken:

The new version of the Plan provides a clearer structure without repetition in comparison with the current version. It also addresses changes in legislation. This new Plan has been through a process of internal consultation with Planning and Legal officers and has been refined to take account of comments received.

Summary of Alternatives or Options considered and rejected:

Preparation of a local enforcement plan is a requirement of the National Planning Policy Framework. Not maintaining such a plan is therefore not an option. Retention of the existing Plan is not considered a satisfactory alternative due to its poor legibility.

Details of any conflict of interest and dispensation granted to the Officer taking the decision or by any Member of the Council in delegating responsibility for any specific express delegation:

None.
