Decision details

To approve the renewal of the designation of Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield and Tapton Neighbourhood Forum

Decision Maker: Interim Head of Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

To approve the renewal of the designation of the Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield and Tapton Neighbourhood Forum (BBEST) for a further five years in accordance with section 61F of the Town & Country Planning Act 1990, to enable BBEST to continue with the preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan.

 

Decision:

The Interim Head of Planning is recommended to:

 

1.    Designate, with immediate effect from 24 January 2020, the Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield and Tapton (BBEST) Neighbourhood Forum as set out in the application (see Background Paper 1) as the only neighbourhood forum for the BBEST neighbourhood area for five years in accordance with section 61F of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990.

 

2.    Publicise the Broomhill, Broomfield, Endcliffe, Summerfield and Tapton Neighbourhood Forum (BBEST) Neighbourhood Forum designation in accordance with Regulations 7 and 10 respectively of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012 (as amended).

 

Reasons for the decision:

A local planning authority may designate an organisation (or indeed renew its designation) as a neighbourhood forum if the authority is satisfied that it meets certain conditions.  The forum application complies with the relevant criteria as summarised in paragraph 1.9 and 4.3.1 to 4.3.3 above and so the Council may renew the designation of the neighbourhood forum and publicise it accordingly.

 

Alternative options considered:

BBEST is the only organisation which has applied to be the neighbourhood forum for the BBEST Neighbourhood Area.  Only one forum can be designated for any neighbourhood area and as there was no objection during the consultation no alternative option has been proposed or considered.  If the Council is satisfied that the application complies with the Regulations then it may renew the designation of the neighbourhood forum.
