Rectory Farm - Supplementary Planning Document pdf icon PDF 103 KB

Report number DM13 of the Cabinet Member for Growth and Communications.   (Enclosure)

Additional documents:

Decision:

Decision:

 

The Cabinet approves the draft Rectory Farm Planning Brief (appended to report number DM13) for the purposes of consultation

 

Considerations/reasons for decision

 

1.    Report number DM13 of the Cabinet Member for Growth and Communications including the appended draft Rectory Farm Planning Brief and associated masterplans

2.    The adoption of a planning brief provides a tool to ensure that the development of parts of the site do not prejudice the delivery of the remainder of the site and that development is undertaken in a cohesive and comprehensive manner

3.    Rectory Farm forms a phase of the Grantham North West Quadrant development

4.    The drafting of the Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been supported by AECOM

5.    The consultation process set out in Appendix 4 of report DM13

6.    The equality analysis attached at Appendix 3 of report number DM13

 

Other options considered and assessed

 

·         To not proceed with the preparation of the Supplementary Planning Document

 

An alternative would be to rely on developers to submit a planning application and hopefully engage in pre-application discussions. The preparation of the SPD is a more positive and proactive approach in that it provides guidance to developers, SKDC officers and the general public on the key issues and impacts to consider when assessing and submitting a planning application for phase 2 of the North West Quadrant
