Chair's Communications


44.1      The Chair addressed the committee, other attendees and those watching the webcast and encouraged them to take part and say what you think about City Plan Part Two. The consultation will be on the council website from 7 September to 30 October 2020. It seems that there will be less planning control in the future given the recent announcements from the government. In 2016 the council were given a target of 13,200 homes by 2030. The government have changed the matrix calculator resulting in a 287% increase, 4 times the current figure, and this is not achievable. We ask that the residents and councillors stand against the changes. This is not a party political matter. David Renard, the local government association Housing spokesperson states that there is no substitute for local knowledge in decision making as they know their area best and can ensure that wider issues will be considered such as infrastructure and affordable housing.
