Consultation process

Consultation on sites within the programme happens on a site by site basis at key points which require decisions.  This is lead by the Council or by its partners dependent on the approach to the site.


Consultation is a key part of any planning application which is made on any site and takes place prior to the submission of any planning application, and as part of the planning application.


Portfolio holders are consulted about key decisions in relation to sites.


Ward members are kept updated and informed at key points within the site development process.



Engagement with ward members regarding sites within the programme takes place on a site by site basis, as proposals for each site progress.  For example, local ward members are informed when survey work takes place on site, and at key points during the development process e.g. when planning applications are made, when there is a start on site.


Portfolio holders are informed of progress on the overall housing growth programme via their regular briefing sessions, and specific, strategic issues and decisions in relation to each site are taken to them for decision.
