101.0 To discuss and approve the following:
101.1 To decide whether to accept the quote for professional planning services of £2,990, excluding vat, for work as follows:
- Preparation of a draft revised consultation response which will be provided to the Parish Council for comment.
- A virtual inception meeting with the Parish Council to discuss key flood risk issues with regard to the proposal.
- A high level review of available documents and site information in relation to flood risk by a technical director including recommendations to support the consultation response.
Members discussed the quote and the need for professional planning services to prepare a response on behalf of the Parish Council for the Brackenway development site re-consultation. It was noted that there are a significant number of reports by the developer in relation to flooding, drainage and surface water since 2018 and subsequent flood risk assessments appear to contradict earlier flood risk assessments. These reports are technical in nature and require specialist support to understand and advise the Parish Council as to whether the current modified application meets the policies as set out in the Formby and Little Altcar Neighbourhood Plan.
It was resolved to approve the quote for professional planning services of £2,990 excluding vat.
