To consider the scope of the proposed
The Cabinet had before it a * report of the Head of Planning, Economy and Regeneration outlining the scope for the commissioning of consultants to assist in the preparation of a Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document and Delivery Plan (SPD) for Crediton Town Centre in the budget years 2020/21.
The Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Regeneration outlined the contents of the report stating that the initial work was primarily to define the scope of the Crediton Town Centre Masterplan. He said the key to focus growth in the main towns was to develop a Masterplan which sat alongside and supplemented the Neighbourhood Plan. He explained that the engagement of the local community was essential for it to succeed and there would be two stages of public consultation.
The local ward members for Crediton welcomed the focus on the town and acknowledged that local people and organisations should be involved in the very early stages of the development of a Masterplan.
Consideration was given to:
· Local Ward Members being consulted
· Inclusion of the local Parishes in the consultation
i) The scope and geographical area of the Masterplan be agreed.
ii) Delegated authority be given to the Head of Planning, Economy and Regeneration in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Planning and Economic Regeneration to engage consultants to assist with the preparation of a Crediton Town Centre Masterplan and Delivery Plan in the budget year 20/21.
(Proposed by Cllr R J Chesterton and seconded by Cllr Mrs M E Squires)
