New Communities Collaboration Partnership

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


As part of work to prepare the local plan, officers are carrying out technical assessments of 299 sites that have been proposed for development. A number of these sites, or clusters of these sites, involve larger scale development that would be delivered over 30 or more years. A partnership approach between the Council and those delivering the development is recommended to ensure that the Council’s objectives on matters such as net zero carbon, community involvement and long term stewardship are fully met over this longer time span.





(i) To support the proposed New Communities Collaboration Partnership approach set out in Appendix 1 for any larger development sites in the forthcoming new local plan;

(ii) To endorse the Model Memorandum of Understanding set out in Appendix 2 and the supplementary paper as the basis for discussion and agreement between the Council and landowners, developers or promoters of large scale development sites in the forthcoming new local plan.
