Comments following Consultation of Community Governance Review - Littleton and Harestock Parish Council pdf icon PDF 114 KB

Minutes:

Councillor Godfrey introduced the report which summarised the outcomes of consultation undertaken with regards to the three options presented as part of the Community Governance Review for Littleton and Harestock Parish Council. 

 

The Corporate Head of Resources advised the Committee that in addition to there being no overwhelming majority level of support for each of the options for change when the community was consulted, the Boundary Commission would also be required to firstly give its permission.  This was because it had made the existing changes to the make-up of the parish following is district wide boundary review in 2015.  Officers felt that there was not a credible argument at this stage because nothing had changed since 2015 when the Parish last made representations to the Boundary Commission.  Officers felt that in 2020 this would not be case due to the Barton Farm housing development adjacent to the area under consideration.  2020 would also be the year that permission would no longer be required from the Boundary Commission.  In assessing this and the consultation responses officers were unable to support the review continuing at this stage but were committed to reviewing the position in 2020.  Officers confirmed they were attending the next Parish Council meeting to ensure they were continued to be informed.

 

During further discussion, Councillor Godfrey advised that the report had also been taken to Littleton and Harestock Parish Council earlier in the week and had supported the arguments that the City Council set out.

 

            RESOLVED:

 

1.            That the Committee note the findings of the recent consultation

 

2.                 That the Committee agree to not proceed to a further stage of the Community Governance Review process at this stage and to inform the Parish Council accordingly.
