North Whiteley Community Governance Review (LR555) pdf icon PDF 132 KB

Additional documents:





The Governance Manager introduced the report and outlined the requirement for a community governance review (CGR) because of the developing community at North Whiteley.  Members’ attention was drawn to a correction to section 1.8 of the appendix to note that there were four options under consideration (not five as stated).


The Governance Manager responded to members’ questions regarding the anticipated number of new dwellings within the North Whiteley Major Development Area (the MDA) and confirmed that the vast majority fell within the current Curdridge Parish Council area.


With regard to the detail of how a review would be undertaken, it was confirmed that a CGR advisory group was to be established with membership of councillors and residents of the MDA.  In addition to working closely with Curdridge Parish Council and Whiteley Town Council, neighbouring parish councils would also be consulted.   It was possible for other options than the four proposed in the report to be put forward during the consultation.  The results of the consultation would be brought back to a Committee in June 2022.


The Committee noted that once the CGR terms of reference were agreed, the review must be completed within twelve months and the Governance Manager confirmed there were sufficient resources to enable this.





1.            That the Community Governance Review be undertaken.


2.            That the Community Governance Review be conducted in accordance with the Terms of Reference contained in Appendix 1 of the report, subject to the correction to section 1.8 as noted above.
