Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Chief Executive, which detailed urgent action that had been taken regarding the signing of a Section 106 (S106) Agreement relating to the Northampton Gateway Strategic Rail Freight Interchange proposal.

 

The Assistant Director of Planning and Economy explained that due to the 1 April 2019 deadline for completing and signing the S106 agreement, it had not been possible for Planning Committee to consider the draft agreement. The urgent action procedure for the Council had therefore been followed, with the Chief Executive discussing the agreement with the Leader of the Council.

 

The signed agreement included a community fund element totalling £300,000, which would be administered by South Northamptonshire Council.

 

In response to questions from the Committee, the Assistant Director of Planning and Economy explained that the total amount of funds committed in the S106 agreement was more that £300,000, but it was only the Community Fund element for the parishes of Blisworth, Milton Malsor and Roade that SNC would be administering.

 

The Assistant Director of Planning and Economy also clarified that a final decision on the Strategic Rail Freight Interchange had not yet been made.

 

It was proposed by Councillor Ken Pritchard and seconded by Councillor Karen Cooper that it be noted that the Committee were very disappointed with the amount allocated to the Community Fund for Blisworth, Milton Malsor and Roade.

 

Resolved

 

(1)      That the urgent action taken by the Chief Executive to authorise entering into a Section 106 agreement to secure community funding be noted.

 

(2)      That it be noted that the Committee were very disappointed with the amount allocated to the Community Fund for Blisworth, Milton Malsor and Roade.
