To receive an update from the Head of Regeneration (South).
The Board received an update on the Council’s regeneration programme from the Head of Regeneration (South). Phase one would comprise of land within the ownership of the Council, the successful delivery of which was anticipated to stimulate market development and unlock further funding. The funding awarded and applied for was outlined and the importance of engaging with residents, local groups and businesses was highlighted.
To scrutinise the proposed approach towards the parking provision for new developments in Havant and Waterlooville town centres.
Report under separate cover.
The Planning Policy Manager introduced the item. The current Parking SPD treated Havant and Waterlooville Town Centres the same in that they could both be potentially suitable for new development with zero parking provision. This inaccuracy had led to a review and consultation on revised proposals.
The Board was asked to consider the draft revised Parking SPD which had been included as Appendix D to the report.
The Board questioned visitor and emergency service vehicle parking, to which it was explained that service areas would also be suitable for such uses. It was agreed that additional text be included that:
§ Clarified the role of servicing areas; and
§ Required the size of servicing areas to be related to the scale of proposed development.
The Board discussed the saleability of properties with zero parking provision, but felt that this was ultimately a matter for a developer to judge and the market to dictate.
Cllr Lloyd proposed that the Operations and Place Shaping Board:
a) Note the responses received to the recent consultation on the Parking Supplementary Planning Document (Appendix A);
b) Note the need for a wider review of the Parking Supplementary Planning Document following the Examination of the Havant Borough Local Plan 2036; and
c) Recommend to Cabinet that the Parking Supplementary Planning Document (at appendix D) be recommended to Full Council for adoption.
This motion was seconded by Cllr Howard and agreed unanimously.
