NEWSLETTER 24

Hi all,

Local Elections

By now, you’ll all be aware that we made a good showing in the Local Elections.  This should help us to keep the post-holders on their toes, especially when the next elections take place.

Other activities

Some members of the team are joining representatives of other groups at the end of the month, for a “workshop” on the Local Plan process, organised by CPRE, aimed at increasing the effectiveness of our challenge at the next and subsequent stages of the Local Plan consultation process.

We’ve been in detailed correspondence with BMBC on issues arising out of the consultation process.  We’ve agreed to a meeting with the planning team early in June, but this will be conditional on receiving adequate and timely answers to questions raised in that correspondence.

Local Plan process and programme

We’ve talked about the process and programme on several occasions, the next stage (formal Local Plan consultation) being due in July/August, based on last-known progress.  However, whilst asking about the timing of the next stage, we’ve unearthed some disturbing news.  According to a BMBC spokesperson:

“… we’ve now finished uploading the representations and are going through the process of considering these to establish how we move forward.  The initial timescale whereby we were suggesting consulting on a publication version this summer is not being adhered to so we are working on a revised Local Development Scheme, which will set out timescales for further consultation on changes and timescales thereafter.  As such, I can confirm that the next stage of consultation isn’t being put before cabinet on 1st July“.

This is very strange, not least because there have been many occasions on which BMBC have explained the Local Plan process and dates (and as publicised by us).  Their website, updated as late as 23 March, has no hints as to what’s afoot.

We’re awaiting a response from BMBC about what this means and what the timing will be.  In the meantime, we’ll be researching the subject.  It’s worrying that this information was only volunteered when we asked a direct question about a specific event.  What if we hadn’t?

Please keep looking at our Facebook page for updates.

Regards,
Ian Preddy
