Item 5.1 A
STRATEGIC PLANNING AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT POLICY AND SCRUTINY PANEL
9TH FEBRUARY 2009
UPDATE TO ITEM 5.1 – THE CORE STRATEGY AND URBAN EXTENSIONS TO WESTON-SUPER-MARE AND YANLEY – INTERIM REPORT
Approval of the Regional Spatial Strategy will set the planning context for North Somerset in terms of, for example, the amount and general location of new development to 2026, including proposed urban extensions. Further progress on the Core Strategy must await clarification of the RSS which has been delayed and remains subject to much debate, and is currently not anticipated until Summer 2009. The next formal stage of the Core Strategy (the Publication stage) will therefore not be considered by Executive until after RSS approval and not before Autumn 2009.
