Liaison with Local Government Association and the Government's proposals for planning

Clarissa Corbisiero of the LGA had been invited to attend the meeting.

She reported that there had been some changes and alterations in the LGA team dealing with planning  (Paul Raines and Caroline Green as well as Clarissa and Russell Reefer) and Cllr Mike Jones had been appointed as Chair of the Environment Board.

LGA's priorities were to focus on growth and that they were supportive of planning that would help growth.  As a result they are keen for authorities to push on local plan preparation and have concerns around the area of CIL where developers are becoming increasingly vocal.  They are keen to provide sector-led support to struggling authorities to avoid more radical intervention and would welcome the identification of technical issues in the government's proposals that could be agreed easily.

The LGA would welcome examples of good practice and success stories which could be passed to CLG and Ministers.

A note of the ensuing discussion is attached at Annex A.
