Tree Planting Strategy

 

A 10-year Tree Planting Strategy and associated planting plan 2021-2031 is being drafted in support of the Council’s declaration of a climate emergency. The planting plan will be developed in full consideration of ‘best practice’ principles, local management knowledge and required resource. This will ensure future tree planting undertaken by the Council is carried out in a sustainable and considered way.

11/01/2021 - Variation to Parking Charges ref: 385    Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

The Council’s Medium Financial Strategy assumes that income from all charges should reviewed. This therefore requires certain parking charges for 2021/22 to be varied to find the additional income. The purpose of this report is not to make the decision on the charges, but to ask for approval to commence the consultation.

In addition, this report reviews other car parks initiatives and services improvements.

11/01/2021 - Supplementary Estimate to Cover Costs Awarded Against the Council in Appeals - Y/103/18/PL and EP/148/20/PL ref: 384    Recommendations Approved

Planning permission was refused for applications Y/103/18/PL and EP/148/20/PL. Both decisions were taken by the Development Control Committee (DCC) and were contrary to the advice of officers. In deciding the subsequent appeals, the Inspector has concluded that the Council acted unreasonably in refusing planning permission and has awarded costs against the Council.

 

This award follows an award of costs for BE/69/19/OUT in May 2020 (a decision also taken at DCC contrary to the officer recommendation). This award of costs (£11,400) was paid out of the Departments budget. A Supplementary Estimate is now sought to pay these further costs as the Department budget is unable to accommodate these significant additional payments.

            To approve a supplementary estimate of a maximum of £33,000 to settle the awards of costs in respect of applications Y/103/18/PL and EP/148/20/PL.  This equates to a band D equivalent Council Tax of £0.53.
