1. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE
Apologies for absence received by Cllr Bob Gibson and Alison Henson (clerk to the Parish Council).
2. Election of officials
The following positions were agreed:
Keith Innocent summarised the aim of the Steering Group, ie to produce a Neighbourhood Plan in consultation with Bramham residents.
Whilst there is no set template it is envisaged that the NP will consist of 4 main areas:
• Community Profile
• Physical Profile
The NP will need to tie in with the LCC Local development Framework (LDF).
• Bramham House
• Bramham Lodge
• Land behind Lyndon Road
• Spen Common Lane
We do not have to identify these same sites as areas we would find acceptable for development, we can nominate others.
We will have to do a referendum on the NP and it needs to have the support of 51% of those who vote.
Allocation of roles
We agreed to allocate lead responsibility for the 4 areas of the plan as follows:
Community Profile & Sustainability– Martin Batt / John Lynch
Action Points – All APs to be actioned by next meeting.
