Minutes:

The Portfolio Holder for Planning set out a report seeking members approval to adopt Poole Harbour Recreation Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) 2019 – 2024.  Members were advised that officers from both Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole and Dorset Councils (BCP) had worked  together on updating an existing supplementary planning document which related to Dorset Heathlands.

Since publication and in the course of preparing a revised version of the heathland supplementary planning document for consultation, colleagues at BCP had made a number of suggested changes to the draft supplementary planning document to give greater consistency between the documents.

The Portfolio Holder advised that he and officers considered that the suggested changes did not give rise to any substantive change to the content of the document. Therefore he proposed an additional recommendation that “any textual changes or amendments to the SPD be delegated to the Executive Director for Place in Consultation with the Portfolio Holder”.  This proposal was supported.
