Questions from Councillors

To hear questions (if any) from councillors of which due notice has been given.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

(1)         Councillor Chris Blow asked the Lead Councillor for Planning, Planning Policy, and Housing Delivery through Planning, Councillor Jan Harwood, the following question:

 

 “Following the last election, when the community clearly showed their disquiet at the Local Plan, may I please ask the Lead Councillor for Planning, Planning Policy, and Housing Delivery through Planning to explain the decision making process that has taken place so far in determining the response to the Court with regard to the three judicial reviews, given that there has apparently been no formal decision in Full Council or the Executive?”

 

The Lead Councillor’s written response was as follows:

 

The current status of the applications for statutory challenge is that the court has granted permission for the claims to be considered at a full hearing.

 

Following the receipt of the claims the Council sought advice from leading Counsel, and a response was prepared in order to assist the court in its decision as to whether to give leave for the claims to proceed to appeal.

 

The advice was, and remains, that the plan was lawfully adopted and that there are no grounds that would justify the Council in not defending the claims. Members of the Executive were consulted, and the Council submitted a response to the court.

 

The advice to the Council is endorsed by the fact that the Secretary of State has confirmed that he considers that the judicial review claims are effectively without merit and, as such, that he will be taking an active role in contesting the proceedings.

 

The Executive will be provided with further and updated advice (noting the submissions of various parties to proceedings), and will be consulted on the detailed submission prior to it being issued.

 

Councillor Jan Harwood

Lead Councillor for Planning, Planning Policy, and Housing Delivery through Planning

 

(2)        Councillor Ramsey Nagaty asked the Lead Councillor for Planning, Planning Policy, and Housing Delivery through Planning, Councillor Jan Harwood, the following question:

 

“Could the Lead Councillor for Planning, Planning Policy, and Housing Deliverythrough Planning, please supply the number of homes already built since the start of the [backdated] local plan period, and the number of planning applications already granted, together with the number of consented student units and the consequential impact on the housing number?”

 

The Lead Councillor’s written response was as follows:

 

“The number of homes built since 1 April 2015 (the start of the plan period) and 31 March 2018 (the most recently published data) is 980 dwellings.

 

The number of outstanding permissions as at 1 April 2018 is 2,695 dwellings.

 

The number of student accommodation permissions as at 1 April 2018 is 1,153 bedspaces. These are all located on the University of Surrey campus. A change in planning guidance published after this date now clarifies how student accommodation can be counted towards the housing requirement based on the amount of accommodation it releases in the housing market. This is calculated using the ratio of average number of students living in student  ...  view the full minutes text for item CO25

Notice of Motion - Declaring a Climate Emergency

In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 11, Councillor George Potter to propose, and Councillor Steven Lee to second, the following motion:

 

Guildford Borough Council notes:

 

a)     That global temperatures have already risen over 1°Celsius from pre-industrial levels and that the recent 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report states that we have just 12 years to act on climate change if global temperature rises are to be kept within the recommended 1.5° Celsius in order to avoid serious, damaging and likely irreversible environmental, economic and social impacts.

b)     That all governments (national, regional and local) have a duty to act, and that, recognising this, a growing number of UK local authorities have already passed 'Climate Emergency' motions.

c)     That Guildford Borough Council passed a motion on 4 December 2018 acknowledging that “human activity has resulted in global climate change that threatens our future” and that “in our position as a local authority, we have a crucial role to play in both leading by example and influencing the way that the residents and businesses of Guildford Borough live and work”.

d)     That the Council has already been proactive in identifying and delivering projects that save energy and carbon and is currently on track to meet its stated target of 43% CO2 emissions reductions by 2020, based on 2008/09 levels. However, it recognises that a greater level of ambition and urgency is required, in the light of the above. 

Guildford Borough Council therefore:

 

  1. Formally declares a Climate Emergency that requires urgent action.
  2. Calls on the UK government to provide the powers, resources and funding support to make local, as well as national, action against climate change possible.

 

  1. Commits to working with partners across the Borough to evaluate and determine how and when Guildford Borough could become carbon neutral.
  2. Commits to working towards making the Council’s activities net-zero carbon by 2030.
  3. Commits to establishing the necessary governance structures, investment plans and officer resources in order for the Council to build a strong foundation to deliver progressively ambitious carbon reductions across our operations.        
  4. Commits to establishing a borough-wide Climate Change Partnership consisting of representatives from all stakeholders across all sectors. 

 

  1. Commits to developing, within 12 months, a clear action plan and timescale for being net-zero carbon across our Council operations, starting with a review of what has already been achieved and plans already instigated. 

 

  1. Commits to delivering a joint Member-Officer training programme to enable a shared understanding of how to deliver the above, starting in September 2019.”

Notice of Motion - Local Plan and 2nd QC Opinion

In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 11, Councillor Susan Parker to propose, and Councillor Joss Bigmore to second, the following motion:

 

“At the ballot box the community expressed considerable disquiet at the Local Plan outcomes secured by the previous Council.

 

The High Court has determined that there is a case to be argued for all three applications for Judicial Review of the decision to adopt the Local Plan.

 

The Council’s own QC has advised that the Full Council is the appropriate decision-making body to determine major decisions in respect of the Local Plan. The decision as to how to respond to the Judicial Reviews is a major decision to be taken in respect of the Local Plan and, to date, no decision has been asked or provided in respect of the Judicial Reviews.

 

The Council’s Local Plan strategy was developed in tandem with the same QC who is advising the Council on its defence.

 

A second QC’s opinion will cost between £10,000 and £20,000, and the Council’s likely spend defending against the Judicial Reviews will run to hundreds of thousands of pounds. The Council may be committing hundreds of thousands of pounds to defending the JRs without the Council having had the ability to agree the strategy.

 

Furthermore, NPPF requires that a Local Plan Review takes place when there is a major change or event. There are now legally-binding commitments to move to Zero-Carbon emissions by 2050 (just 16 years after the end of the Local Plan period). A consequential London Green Belt Council paper urges councils to protect the Green Belt and greenfield sites to protect the environment and minimize carbon emissions and/or to mitigate local carbon emissions.

 

Given that the brownfield survey (relied upon by the Local Plan) is not comprehensive, there are both reasons and opportunity for the Council to review its options in terms of maximizing sustainability (possibly including a new Strategic Land Availability Assessment).

 

The Judicial Review hiatus offers a useful opportunity to reconsider both the site allocations and the Council’s JR strategy.

 

Any strategic decision regarding the Council’s Judicial Review Strategy is a major decision requiring agreement by the Full Council.

 

As a result, the Council agrees that, prior to such reconsideration including a second QC’s opinion, it will limit any defence of the approved Local Plan to matters of factual accuracy or clarification and will then come back to Full Council for a further decision, including the ability to communicate to the Court the new Council’s concerns about the perceived excesses in the Local Plan

Notice of Motion - Town Centre Master Planning

In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 11, Councillor John Rigg to propose, and Councillor Tom Hunt to second, the following motion:

 

“The Council has acknowledged that town centre master planning was not part of the process of preparing the Local Plan - including putting in place a full, detailed land availability assessment of brownfield sites in the town centre - because that could have compromised the Local Plan itself and its objectives. 

 

The majority of Councillors were elected based on an explicit pledge to master plan the town. At the informal Placemaking EAB on Monday 1st July, there was a common call for a master plan for the town centre. 

 

The Council therefore

 

RESOLVES:

 

That the process for bringing forward, within the term of this Council, a sustainable Town Centre Master Plan Development Plan Document be commenced immediately, and the Director of Planning and Regeneration be authorised to engage external master-planning consultancy advice to assist in this process”.
