Scheme of delegation

 

Under the Officer Scheme of Delegation (April 2019), the Executive Director of Place has the power (138) “To undertake all action in relation to any function of the Council concerning neighbourhood planning” including the power to make a final determination as to whether to designate a neighbourhood plan area and/or make such an area a business area.

 

This power only applies, however, when there is insufficient time to have the matter considered by the relevant committee as part of the normal committee cycle; the Council is legally obliged to approve the designation; and/or there has been no objection to the proposal submitted to the Council within any relevant time for the submission of representations which has not been withdrawn.

 

This power (138) with conditions / limitations has been delegated to the Community Planning Manager though the Local Scheme of Nomination for Planning Services (29 April 2022).

 

A six-week public consultation has now concluded with no objection to the proposal having been received. The conditions within the Officer Scheme of Delegation / Local Scheme of Nomination have now been met and a decision should be made without delay.
