Canada Water Area Action Plan found 'sound'
Published Thursday, 22 December 2011
We have now received the Final Inspector's report for the Canada Water AAP. The conclusion of the report was that the AAP was found sound subject to minor changes.
We have now received the Final Inspector's report. This report is binding and we anticipate that the AAP will be adopted by Council Assembly in February 2012.
The Inspector's Report was dispatched for 'Fact Checking' on 22 November 2011. The Council sent a response to the Planning Inspectorate on 29 November 2011.
The Canada Water AAP was examined in public by an independent planning inspector and the conclusion of the Inspector's binding report was that the AAP was found sound subject to minor changes.
Prior to and during the examination in public (EiP) we provided the Inspector with a list of proposed changes to the AAP to provide factual updates or minor amendments arising from the consultation period and the discussion at the EiP. The Inspector agreed these changes would improve the AAP and some were needed to make the AAP sound.
The Inspector also proposed two further changes that he considered were necessary to ensure that the AAP is sound. These are that the Quebec Industrial Estate, 24-28 Quebec Way, and the vacant car park to the rear of 24-28 Quebec Way should be in the core area and the area around Needleman Street should be in an urban density zone. These changes are set out in Appendix C of his final report.
