Presented by: Mr Andrew Cormie - e-petition received Monday 7 August 2017.

Lead Officer:  Jenifer Jackson- Head of Planning

Petition: We the undersigned petition The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to stop the current Local Development Plan (Regulation 19) consultation and restart it only AFTER advising residents that they are invited to comment on any aspect of the plan.

The RBWM Head of Planning sent a letter dated 27 June 2017, Andrew Cormie, limiting comments on the Reg 19 Consultation. The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has responded on 17th July 2017 to a request by Andrew Cormie, advising that there is no limitation at the second stage - (so-called Reg 19) as to what topics of the plan residents may comment upon. He points out that the Reg 19 stage is the first opportunity that anyone would have to request involvement in the hearing sessions for the Local Plan. I have asked Head of Planning to stop the consultation, restarting after giving proper advice, and received no response. In order to stop it I therefore call, through this petition, for the matter to be discussed at an RBWM Planning and Housing Overview and Scrutiny Panel meeting, at which the Head of Planning must be questioned. Under the RBWM Constitution Rule C10.37, I wish that the Lead Member for Planning will also be questioned at the meeting.

Decision: The Planning & Housing Overview & Scrutiny Panel held on 15 August 2017 agreed (Councillors Kellaway, M.Airey, Hilton, Sharpe, Smith & Walters in favour and Councillor Beer against) that the Panel had considered that the process for Regulation 19 Publication and Regulation 20 representations had been clearly set out and was lawful.  The extension of the Regulation 19 period to 27 September supported by updated information contained in the Statement of Representation Procedure and Statement of Fact together with other information on the Council website would be of assistance to residents who wished to respond.
