MINERALS REGIONAL TECHNICAL STATEMENT SECOND REVISION (RTS2)
Decision Maker: Individual Cabinet Member Decisions
Decision status: For Determination
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The Cabinet Member for Enterprise and Land Use Planning partially endorsed the Regional Technical Statement (2nd Review) in relation to the individual apportionment for aggregates for the Monmouthshire area only and not agree to the principle of meeting the wider sub-regional apportionment requirement at this time due to the lack of information regarding the implications for the RLDP.
The Cabinet Member agreed to progress with the preparation of a Statement of Sub-Regional Collaboration (SSRC) to explore options of how the sub-regional apportionment can be met to enable the RLDP to progress through the plan process. A SSRC could be agreed at officer level under delegated powers provided that all constituent Local Planning Authorities within the sub-region accept their individual apportionments for aggregates for their areas and make appropriate allocations/designations in their RLDPs to address such requirements. If the need arises for Monmouthshire to meet another authority’s apportionment, any related statement of sub-regional collaboration would need to be agreed and endorsed by Cabinet.
