Cabinet consideration of formal consultation on the draft policies submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination in Public
Cabinet were advised that the Regional Leaders Forum (4NW) had published Draft Interim Policies as the next stage in the Partial Review of the Regional Spatial Strategy for the North West. Following discussions with the Government, the scope of the Review had been amended and would now only cover policies for gypsies and travellers, travelling showpeople and parking standards. The remaining issues would be reviewed as part of the emerging single Regional Strategy which was to be the subject of a separate consultation process.
The deadline for comments on the Draft Interim Policies for gypsies and travellers, travelling showpeople and parking standards was 27 March 2009. It was recommended that the Directors Comments set out within the body of the report form the basis of the Council’s response to 4NW.
Resolved - That the Directors Comments and Recommendations 1 to 3 set out in this report form the basis of the Council’s response to the Regional Leaders Forum.
