Local Plan report to councillors

Release date: 
Wednesday, 10 January, 2018

Burnley Council’s executive is recommended to approve a revised Local Development Scheme (LDS) in order to make progress towards adopting the borough’s draft Local Plan when it meets later this month.

The council’s current LDS needs revising, in light of recent comments made by the planning inspector, to enable the examination of the draft Local Plan to proceed.

Following a number of public hearings into the draft Local Plan, the inspector discussed concerns about the suitability and deliverability of the proposed gypsy and traveller site in Oswald Street with the council.

In order to ensure the examination can be completed, the council is proposing to prepare a separate gypsy and traveller site allocations development plan document.

Councillor Sue Graham the executive member for regeneration and economic development, said: “We’ve taken on board the issues raised by the inspector regarding the gypsy and travellers’ accommodation.

“It’s vital that the examination of the draft Local Plan continues without significant delay. Taking the course of action proposed enables the Local Plan process to proceed.”

The inspector's letter to the council, and our reply, can be found at http://www.burnley.gov.uk/node/3012 - scroll to the bottom of the page for items referenced EL4.001 and .002.
