To consider the establishment of such a group to deal with the delivery of development.
The Cabinet had before it a report* of the Head of Planning, Economy and Regeneration regarding the opportunity to discuss development site delivery in a forum that would allow frank discussion, allow for a better understanding of development monitoring and assist in the innovation of delivery projects.
The Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Regeneration outlined the contents of the report stating that the delivery of housing and employment to the district was increasingly important and that the intention behind the establishment of this proposed group was to monitor the process after planning permission had been granted so as to enable the delivery process. He further stated that all councils were getting much more involved in this and the Planning Advisory Service had also reiterated the need for the elected membership of councils to become much more engaged in this part of the development process.

b) Following adoption that the necessary changes are made to the Constitution.
