Meeting: 04/02/2020 - Business Committee (Item 4)

Scrutiny of the draft National Development Framework

Supporting documents:

  • Restricted enclosure 44

Minutes:

Business Managers considered the letter from the CCERA Committee and noted that statutory requirements in relation to policy matters did not usually have corresponding Standing Order provisions.

 

The Trefnydd indicated that the Minister for Housing and Local Government is content to comply with all three of the committee’s recommendations, without the need for them to be set out in Standing Orders:

 

·         The Minister will lay the draft NDF a consultation report setting out the issues raised during the consultation and including a response to CCERA’s recommendations and conclusions; a schedule of changes the Minister intends to make following consideration of the consultation responses and committee recommendations, and an updated integrated sustainability appraisal.

·         The Minister will write to all committee chairs once the draft NDF is laid.

·         The Minister welcomes a plenary debate on the NDF and believes it accords with the approach envisaged by the Planning (Wales) Act 2015.  The debate will take place during the Assembly’s 60-day consideration period so the government can reflect on the Assembly’s decision and the recommendations of the committee(s) in a timely manner. 

 

The Trefnydd indicated she would confirm this response in writing to the Business Committee, so that it can respond to the CCERA committee in those terms.

 

The Committee agreed that this was an appropriate response that would enable the spirit of the CCERA recommendation to be applied.
