The Committee considered the report of the Director of Strategy, Performance and Governance seeking adoption of the North Quay Development Brief (a background paper to the report) as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) following public consultation.
The report set out the process that had been followed in the creation of this SPD and the recent public consultation exercise that had taken place. It was noted that the consultation statement was attached at Appendix A to the report and the Strategic Environmental Assessment and Habitat Regulation Assessment Screening Opinion Environmental Report at Appendix B.
The Strategy Theme Lead: Place presented the report, detailed the result of the public consultation and amendments proposed. It was noted that a summary of the consultation responses was set out in the report.
The Chairman thanked the Officer for her detailed report and work on the Development Brief and then moved the recommendation as set out in the report. This was duly seconded.
In response to questions raised the following information was provided:
· Quayside Walk – This was an aspiration on the North Quay but could not be achieved due to current land ownership.
· Parking - It was noted that existing retail areas provided car parking and any new development coming forward would have to meet adopted parking standards.
· Causeway Flood Risk Review –This had been held up due to resource implications that had come about as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Members were advised that the review had now been received in draft form.
In response to a query, the Director of Strategy, Performance and Governance advised that this Committee should be recommending to the Council that the Development brief be adopted. Considering this the Chairman amended his earlier proposal seeking Members agreement to recommend adoption of the Development Brief to the Council. Upon a vote being taken this was duly agreed.
RECOMMENDED that the North Quay Development Brief be adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document.
