Report of the Planning Policy Manager

Additional documents:


The Planning Policy Manager introduced a report, which had been circulated in advance of the meeting, seeking approval to issue the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan Preferred Approach document for a period of consultation.


It was noted that the list of background documents in paragraph 1.8 of the report had been correct at the time of publication but two additional documents had since been added to the Greater Nottingham Partnership website, including a landscape study and a document which sets out Gedling Borough Council’s housing supply.  The list would increase further as plan preparation progresses.


Councillor Payne proposed an amendment to the original recommendations in the report. This was seconded by Councillor Hollingsworth and the proposition was put to a named vote as follows:


For the amendment:


Councillors Clarke, Ellis, Fox, Hollingsworth, R McCrossen, Payne, Wheeler.


Against the amendment:








The Chair declared the amendment carried and it was
