Authority to consult
Duncan Clarke, Strategic Planning Manager, presented the report, accompanied by Andy Webber, Head of Development Management and Strategic Planning. Following a question from committee, the process of formal adoption was clarified as well as enforcement powers available to the local authority. Explanation was also provided as to the involvement of residents and community groups, both to date and in future, as part of the consultation.
Following the presentation, the Chair invited contributions from Councillor Jake Short (committee member) as ward councillor for Carshalton Central.
Members enquired as to whether improvements could be made to the listed railings surrounding Carshalton Ponds. The Head of Development Management and Strategic Planning confirmed TfL as the highway authority for the road in question and agreed to pass comments onto Highways Officers for investigation.
It was requested that the consultation be extended beyond the Carshalton and Clockhouse local committee area to the neighbouring St Helier, The Wrythe and Wandle Valley area. Concerns were raised about the timing of consultations and the simultaneity with the Sutton town centre process (see previous item). The Strategic Planning Manager committed to take this into consideration when planning the consultation.
Finally, Members gave consideration to the Equality Impact Assessment and any difference to the preceding item. The Strategic Planning Manager explained that the Local Plan was accompanied by a comprehensive Equalities Impact Assessment and, as both documents were in conformity with the Local Plan, the Local Plan Equalities Impact Assessment applied to both the Conservation Area Character Appraisals and Management Plans.
RESOLVED: that the Draft Carshalton Village Conservation Area Character Appraisal and Management Plan be approved for consultation.
