538            PROPOSALS RELATING TO STRATEGIC PLANNING PANEL REGULATIONS: COMPOSITION AND FINANCIAL MATTERS (REF) –

 

This matter had been the subject of consideration by the Cabinet at its meeting held on 19th October 2015.  At that time, the Cabinet had been advised of the Welsh Government’s consultation regarding the gender composition and financial matters relating to future Strategic Planning Panels.  Following the analysis of the consultation, the Welsh Government would consider bringing forward regulations with a view to bringing them into force in spring 2016.

 

The Planning (Wales) Act 2015 amended Part 6 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 and introduced Strategic Development Plans which were to be produced by a Strategic Planning Panel.  The plan making Panel would have corporate body status and would be formed of both Local Planning Authority (LPA) members and nominated members from social, economic and environmental groups. Only the LPA members would have voting rights.

 

A Strategic Development Plan was a development plan for a strategic planning area, such as South East Wales, and would include issues which cut across a number of LPAs such as housing, employment, transport, infrastructure, minerals and waste.  It was considered that addressing these issues in the Strategic Development Plan would ensure that they were planned in an integrated and consistent way.

 

The Strategic Planning Panel was a plan making body and would make decisions on the governance arrangements of the Panel, such as nominating members, agreeing standards, finance, appointment of technical staff etc.  The Panel would also be required to make decisions on the production of the Strategic Development Plan, including whether a Strategic Development Plan was ready for independent examination.  The report noted that the Panel did not require agreement from the constituent LPAs.

 

The consultation document was issued on 10th August, 2015 and responses were required by 2nd November, 2015.

 

The report considered the composition of Strategic Planning Panels under The Equalities Act 2010, as Welsh Government sought to increase equality and diversity on public bodies.  The consultation paper proposed that the Strategic Planning Panel should be made up of a minimum percentage of 40% female and 40% male LPA members.  The report supported this approach, but was of the view that consideration should also be given to other equal opportunity matters such as race, religion, age, disability and sexual orientation.

 

The report also considered Financial Matters related to the Planning (Wales) Act 2015 as the proposed Strategic Development Panels would involve considerable qualifying expenditure which would have to be funded by constituent authorities which could not be estimated, but which could be considerable.

 

RESOLVED – T H A T the Council’s formal response to the Welsh Government consultation on “Proposals Relating to Strategic Planning Panel Regulations: Composition and Financial Matters” be noted.

 

Reason for decision

 

In acknowledgement of the Cabinet’s response to Welsh Government.

REFUSED                (Written Representations)

 

1.         Having regard to the evidence and conclusions contained within the Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Needs Background Paper (2013) and consequently and Gypsy and Traveller Site Assessment Background Paper (2013) to the Vale of Glamorgan Deposit Local Development Plan 2011-2026 (LDP) and the status of the application site within that plan as the sole allocated Gypsy/Traveller site, it is considered that the proposed change of use would conflict with the evidence base within the background papers (and draft Policy MG 5) of the LDP and would therefore be contrary to the aims and objectives of the LDP. The approval of the development would also pre determine the decision about the location of Gypsy /Traveller sites, which ought properly to be taken within the context of the Local Development Plan process. The development is therefore considered premature pending the adoption of the Deposit Local Development Plan, and would have a significant detrimental impact on the deliverability of the plan and its objectives,  contrary to the advice and guidance in Chapter 2 of the Planning Policy Wales (7th Edition 2014).
