7. Planning Applications for Consideration

Notes:Members are reminded that on 15 January 2012 Section 143 of the Localism Act 2011 came into force. This section amends Section 70 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (determination of applications for planning permission: general considerations) and provides that when determining planning applications, local planning authorities shall have regard to:
(a) the provisions of the development plan, so far as material to the application;
(b) any local finance considerations, so far as material to the application; and
(c) any other material considerations.

The only remaining element of the development plan is the saved policies of the adopted Teignbridge Local Plan (1996). Regional Planning Guidance 10 and the Devon Structure Plan have been revoked.

In this context 'local finance considerations' means grant or other financial assistance that has been, or will or could be provided by central Government or sums that a relevant authority, such as Teignbridge District Council has received, or will or could receive in payment of Community Infrastructure Levy.

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) came into effect on 27 March 2012 and its provisions constitute material considerations which carry significant weight in the determination of planning applications.

A further material consideration is the emerging Local Plan (2013 - 2033) which was submitted for examination in June 2013. The weight to be given to individual policies in the submission Local Plan is to be considered in accordance with paragraph 216 of the NPPF:

· the stage of preparation of the emerging plan (the more advanced the preparation, the greater the weight that may be given);

● the extent to which there are unresolved objections to relevant policies (the less significant the unresolved objections, the greater the weight that may be given); and

● the degree of consistency of the relevant policies in the emerging plan to the policies in this Framework (the closer the policies in the emerging plan to the policies in the Framework, the greater the weight that may be given).

Each report will give details of the relevant saved Local Plan policies and the relevant material considerations and the weight to be given to them.

Any representations received after the preparation of the reports will be placed on the Public Access area of the Council's Website and can be viewed prior to the Meeting.
