To set out the Work Programme of the Policy Development Panel (report of the Executive Manager Governance (Deputy Monitoring Officer) enclosed.
The Panel considered a report by the Executive Manager Governance, which set out the work programme of the Panel. The work programme consisted of two sections, the first setting out the dates of future panel meetings along with proposed items for consideration, and the second setting out Task Groups that had been identified by the Panel.
Members noted that at its meeting on 23 June 2020, the Panel had requested that the Planning Design Task Group undertake further work, as a result of more time becoming available to investigate the issues within its scope. However, this had not yet occurred, due to potential implications as a result of the Government White Paper on Planning Reform, and a change in the Portfolio Holder with responsibility for Strategic Planning. Clarity was being sought as to the way forward, and to clarify timelines for the work of the Task Group.
That the Work Programme be noted.
