RECOMMENDED ITEMS (REQUIRING A DECISION)
The Localism Act 2011 and National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) require that each Local Planning Authority should produce a Local Plan for its area. The Council now needs to ensure that it achieves a ‘sound’ Plan, in accordance with the Government’s planning policy, the NPPF. Since 2015 Eastleigh Borough Council has been working towards the preparation of a Local Plan for the period 2016 – 2036. The Local Plan sets out the policies and plans to guide future development within Eastleigh Borough up to 2036. It will be the statutory document against which individual planning applications are determined. The Local Plan therefore has a key role in shaping the future of the Borough.

It will be the statutory document against which individual planning applications are determined. The Local Plan therefore has a key role in shaping the future of the Borough.
This Report summarises the work that has taken place since 11 December 2017, when Cabinet and Council last made resolutions on the Local Plan.
Between December 2017 and June 2018 the Council continued to prepare the Local Plan and its evidence base in accordance with the December 2017 resolutions. Appendix 4 sets out the evidence that has been finalised.
The Local Plan and its evidence base were subsequently published on 25 June 2018 for a consultation that took place up to 8 August 2018. Officers have considered the responses to this consultation carefully. Having done so, they are satisfied that there are no material changes to the Local Plan as approved under delegated powers on 20 June 18 and that the relevant requirements have been complied with and that the Plan is ready for independent examination by an Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State. This Report therefore seeks formal authority to submit the Local Plan for independent examination.
(1) That Council approves the Eastleigh Borough Local Plan (2016-2036) for the purpose of its submission to the Secretary of State for independent examination under section 20 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (the PCPA 2004) (see Appendix 1 to the report);
(2) That Council approves the submission documents prepared pursuant to Regulation 22 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (the Local Planning Regulations) (see Appendices 2,3 and 5 to the report); and
delegated authority to the Chief Executive for the following matters relating
to the Local Plan:
(a) to submit the Local Plan together with the
submission documents prepared pursuant to Regulation 22 of the Local Planning
(b) to make non-material amendments to the
Local Plan and/or its Policies Maps prior to submission;
(c) to finalise the evidence base prior to submission (subject to the fact that if changes are significant, the Local Plan shall be returned to Cabinet and Full Council for further decision); and
(d) to take or authorise such steps as may be
necessary for the independent examination of the Local Plan to be completed,
i. proposing, requesting from and discussing
with the Inspector, at submission and through the examination, ‘main
modifications’ to the wording of the Local Plan to ensure its soundness and
legal compliance, in accordance with section 20(7C) of the PCPA 2004 (noting
that ‘main modifications’ will subsequently be subject to public consultation
prior to the completion of the examination and approved by Council);
ii. indicating ‘additional modifications’ ... view the full minutes text for item 44.
To consider the Council’s response to Southampton Airport’s Draft Masterplan Consultation (paper 5).
On 19 September 2018 Southampton Airport Ltd launched a consultation on a new Draft Master Plan. The six week consultation closes on the 30 October 2018, therefore a number of urgent meetings have been convened and this report has been produced.
The Airport’s Master Plan sets out its vision for the coming 20 years, which includes a forecast growth in passengers from 2 to 5 million by 2037, facilitated by a variety of associated onsite developments.
There are considerable economic benefits to the Borough being host to a successful international airport. The Master Plan sets out projections which project a growth in onsite jobs from 950 to 1500 alongside an economic impact rising from £161m to £400m over the period of the Plan.
Alongside the projected significant economic benefits, there are potential environmental impacts associated with the expansion which are likely to require more detailed assessment.
Following the publication of its Master Plan the Airport is likely to apply for planning permissions in order to move forward with its plans.
That Cabinet recommends that Council notes the Southampton Airport Master Plan consultation and appended consultation response.
