Residents Presentations to Scrutiny Committee 15 June 2011

Residents representing four of the seven sites proposed to be developed, made presentations to the Task and Finish Group of the Land Sales Scrutiny Committee.

George Taylor led the way with their presentation on Clayton road field, followed by Belinda Mifflin on Repton Drive and Callum Henderson on Winchester Drive. Heather Bayliss finished off the presentations with a talk about Clayhangar Close, Bradwell. As well as talking about the sites themselves the residents stated their views on themes affecting all the sites and criticised both the decision to sell off the seven sites and the secretive way it was carried out.

Outcome of the first scrutiny meeting

The first scrutiny meeting, held on 8th of June, resulted in these facts:

1. Planning Policy:

The councils policy does not support building on Greenfield sites.

2. Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment:

The Council has sufficient land for the next 5 years without using the 7 sites brought forward of surplus to requirements.
