To consider a report enabling Members to reach a decision in respect of any recommended proposals for consideration for the 2nd Consultation Stage.
The Committee had before it a *report of the Returning Officer/Director of Business Improvement and Operations requesting members to reach a decision in respect of any recommended proposals for consideration for the second stage consultation.
The Consultant outlined the contents of the report stating that notification of the first consultation had been widespread and that all parishes and local residents had been invited to submit representations. The Committee had considered all of the representations informally and the outcome of those meetings was presented in appendices 1a and 1b of the report. He also intended to address the number of Councillors for each parish council at this meeting.
Members then walked through the appendices and agreed formally their initial considerations with further discussion taking place on the following:
· Submission 33 - Hittisleigh/Cheriton Bishop, the movement of some properties to Hittisleigh
· Halberton/Willand and Uffculme – the issues surrounding land east of the M5 and its association with Uffculme and Willand rather than Halberton; whether Lucombe Park had a closer association with Uffculme and that Halberton Parish were in agreement that this parcel of land should move to Uffculme parish. Whether the Mid Devon Business Park should be placed within Willand parish, where Bidwell Avenue should sit as well as Hitchcocks and Langlands Business Parks. It was felt that the views of the residents should be considered as they had been with all the other submissions. It was agreed that several options were available and that those options should form part of the second consultation process.
