This report seeks endorsement for the draft
Planning Advisory Note in order that it can be adopted as planning
(1) That the Cabinet Member for Planning, Employment, Economy & Regeneration approves the draft ‘Food Growing and Development ‘ document as a Planning Advice Note to provide information and guidance for use by Development Control, Planning Policy officers, applicants and their agents.
Reasons for the decision:
The PAN will offer technical advice to developers on how to deliver good quality food growing areas within development sites. It is an innovative document intended to draw together good practice and further the duty for the local planning authority to deliver sustainable development through the planning system.
Alternative options considered:
The alternative option would be not to develop and adopt a PAN on the subject of food growing. The opportunity to benefit from the offer by Food Matters to draft this note for use by the city council was considered beneficial to the local planning authority in supporting the delivery of policy objectives.
