Minutes:

Cabinet considered the report of the Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Strategy that sought approval to undertake a public consultation on the draft Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) produced by Gloucester City Homes (GCH).

 

The Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Strategy summarised the background to the consultation and emphasised the importance of a meaningful engagement with residents.  He drew Members’ attention to the recommendation of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee Meeting of 25th February 2019 (Appendix 3) that asked Cabinet to urgently examine provision for independent advice once funding for the tenancy advisory service ceases.  He stated that officers would be working with Gloucester City Homes and residents of Matson and Podsmead to examine options to continue the provision of independent advice once Government funding for the Tenant Participation Advisory Service (TPAS) ends on 31st March 2019 in order that both communities continue to be supported throughout the regeneration process.  The Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods reminded Members that it was very important that tenants retained an independent voice from the outset in what would be a long process.  She further commented on the strong community spirit within Matson and Podsmead and its potential to enrich the regeneration and form the basis of pioneering academic study.  The Cabinet Member for Planning and Housing Strategy reiterated that community participation was vital to success and took the opportunity to urge residents to join the community advisory groups and engage with the regeneration process.

 

RESOLVED that:

 

(1)     the draft Supplementary Planning Document – Podsmead Estate Regeneration set out at Appendix 1 of the report be approved for public consultation.

 

(2) the draft Supplementary Planning Document – Matson Estate Regeneration set out at Appendix 2 of the report be approved for public consultation.
