Further studies and updates to existing studies have been undertaken to provide evidence in support of the City Plan. The Report seeks approval of these studies as evidence to underpin the City Plan.
27.1 The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director Environment, Development and Housing seeking approval of two studies which would provide evidence to underpin the submission of the City Plan Part One which was due to go to Examination in October; these were the Update on the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, September 2013 and the Employment Land Supply Delivery Trajectory, June 2013. It was also recommended that the Committee noted the content of the studies and gave delegated authority to agree two further studies which were being prepared, namely a study to assess the Cost of the Code for Sustainable Homes and Part 1 of the Whole Plan Viability Exercise Study.
27.7 RESOLVED – (1) That the Committee approves the Update to the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment September 2013 study and the Employment Land Supply Delivery Trajectory June 2013 study as supporting evidence for the City Plan Part One and other development plan documents and planning decisions; and
(2) That the Committee notes that two further studies are being prepared which will provide evidence to support policy on sustainable building at the City Plan Part One Examination, namely the Cost of Building to the Code for Sustainable Homes (Updated Cost Review 2013) and Part 1 of the Whole Plan Viability Exercise study and delegates authority to the Head of Planning & Public Protection in consultation with the Chair of Economic Development and Culture Committee to approve these two studies as supporting evidence for the City Plan Part One and other development plan documents and planning decisions
