15.2      Nick Hibberd stated that consultation offered the Greater Brighton region to clear express what it could offer as a city region adding that the draft response would be circulated to the Board and sign off requested via email due to the short timeframe.


15.3      Councillor Platts stated her concern for the extreme short of affordable housing in the region and asked if that response could convey a request for additional powers for local authorities to build housing.
