    Minutes:

    The Committee considered the report.

     

    Officers provided an overview of the plans for consultation on the SPD. It was noted consultation would be for six weeks duration and would be more extensive than usual in recognition of the significance of the plans and local resident and business interest in them. 

     

    On the request of the Committee, officers agreed to liaise with Mr David Thompstone and Joseph Partners regarding the possibility of their support for a leaflet drop in the North Finchley area to support further awareness of the consultation.

     

    Officers agreed to carefully monitor the level of responses to the consultation with a view to taking a pragmatic approach to allow for late submissions.

     

    Councillor Barry Rawlings moved that and amendment be made to recommendation 2 to specify that the report back to the Committee in February include a high level transport study of North Finchley. This was duly seconded and unanimously agreed by the Committee.

     

    On the recommendations in the report as amended being put to the vote the recommendations were unanimously agreed.

     

    RESOLVED -

     

    1.    That the Committee notes the contents of the draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) attached at Appendix A.

     

    2.    That the Committee approves the draft SPD as the basis for public consultation. The SPD will then return to the Committee with the consultation responses, an updated Equalities Impact Assessment and a high level transport study for North Finchley.

     

    3.    That the Committee delegates authority to the Deputy Chief Executive to make any necessary changes of a minor nature to the draft SPD in consultation with the Leader prior to public consultation.
