To set out the Work Programme of the Policy Development Panel (report of the Assistant Director – Governance and Monitoring Officer enclosed).


Additional documents:



The Panel considered a report by the Executive Manager for 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.


Regarding Appendix A, the Chairman noted that:

  • The Untidy Sites and Safeguarding policies be added to the January Work Programme;
  • the Unreasonable Behaviour and Vexatious Policy was due for review but policies in general were being reviewed to establish whether they applied across the partnership or with individual authorities. The Senior Change and Performance Business Partner would ensure that the Policy Register was updated when the position was clarified; and
  • in light of no further progress with regard to the proposed Planning Reform, the Planning Design Task Group Final Report and the update on Planning Reform would be moved to a future meeting.


Regarding Appendix B, the Chairman noted that:

  • In order to proceed with the Planning Design Task Group and the Community Infrastructure Levy Task Group, further information on the Government White Paper on Planning Reform was required. A decision would need to be made at a future meeting as to whether these items should remain on the Work Programme; and
  • the South Holland Centre Task Group had commenced its work in September 2021, and had been productive.




That the Work Programme be noted.
