1.    The Chair, Councillor Maguire and Councillor Savva had been consulted on the Heritage Strategy.

2.    The strategy was circulated to Members of the Committee in advance of the publication of the agenda and therefore all Members of the Local Plan Cabinet Sub-Committee had sight of the paper.

 

The following points were highlighted:

 

·         The Heritage Strategy concluded the consultation period in February 2019. There was quite an extensive consultation period which was via many different channels both through Community Groups, Councillors, individuals. The public consultation was approved by the Local Plan Cabinet Sub-Committee (LPCSC) on the 24th October 2018. Public Consultation ran for a 12-week period, alongside consultation on the new draft Local Plan. Extensive public engagement included presentation to area ward forums and community organisations across the Borough.

·         Since the end of consultation, officers and members have been working to finalise the Heritage Strategy. It is a new document and is a 5-year strategy. The last time the Council had a Heritage Strategy was in 2008 and is right and proper that the Council should have a fresh Heritage Strategy that covers the whole borough.

·         Members attention was drawn to page 20 of the report which details a very helpful chart. There are 2 key documents that are long term views in terms of the plans for the Borough and the Council’s overall strategy to being able to deal with growth and anticipated growth for the Borough:

a.    The Local Plan – that is being developed and is in the process of consultation and that is in the context of the London Plan that is also currently being developed at a London level from the Mayor’s Office.

b.    The Core Strategy from 2010.

·         The Local Plan and Core Strategy are the two overarching long-term planning documents for the Borough. The Heritage Strategy is one of the sub-documents that helps provide detail for the overall strategic direction that is provided in those 2 core strategies.

·         Heritage is very important for the Borough and are we very fortunate both in terms of the assets within the Borough but also assets in terms of open spaces for example. Given that the Council is about to embark on a period where there will be growth, which will happen with or without the Council’s input. It is important that there is good growth for the Borough, as it is growth that will benefit local people. Protecting heritage and shaping the Borough accordingly will be very important.

·         The Heritage Strategy is very much welcomed and comes at a time where other key planning policy is being developed and set out. That will determine the way growth happens for the next 5, 10 and 20 years aswell.
