This paper has been produced to seek approval for a number of policy statements that have been produced to meet the requirements of the Highways Code of Practice (October 2018). It follows the papers (Review of Highways policies) presented to cabinet in November 2017 which outlined the development of a new highways management framework and it was agreed that sign off of updated policies and procedures would be via reports to the Cabinet Member Delegated decisions meetings or by the relevant Directo dependent on the level of service charge.  As this is the first round of policy updates it was agreed that these should be taken to the Cabinet Member for Environment Delegated Decisions meeting irrespective of level of service charge.

 

It also seeks approval to apply a more flexible approach in how the Council manages the Statement of Priorities Definitive map caseload.

 

In preparation of the new documentation it should be noted that the statements have been developed in collaboration with our legal and insurance teams in addition to consultation and lengthy discussion at the Cabinet Advisory Group for Environment and Transport in November 2018.

(a)      the revised Highways Policy Statements at Annex 1 – 10 to the report CMDE8;

 

(b)      the revised Statement of Priorities at Annex 11 to the report CMDE8.

Oxfordshire Minerals & Waste Annual Monitoring Report 2018 pdf icon PDF 178 KB

Forward Plan Ref: 2018/099

Contact: Peter Day. Minerals and Waste Policy Team Leader Tel: (01865) 815544

 

Report by Director for Planning & Place (CMDE9).

 

The County Council is required to prepare and publish minerals and waste local plan monitoring reports. This procedural and information requirement has been met by the production each year of a Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report. The Annual Monitoring Report must report on implementation of the Minerals and Waste Development Scheme (the programme for preparation of the Minerals and Waste Local Plan) and on the extent to which local plan policies are being achieved. A draft Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report 2017 (Calendar Year) has been prepared, covering the year 1 January to 31 December 2017.

 

The draft Annual Monitoring Report 2017 reports on how work on preparation of the revised Minerals and Waste Local Plan: Core Strategy was progressed in relation to the programme in the Council's Minerals and Waste Development Scheme, February 2016. It also reports on: production of aggregate minerals; permissions granted for mineral working and landbanks of permitted reserves; production of secondary and recycled aggregates; amounts of waste produced and methods of management; permissions granted for waste management facilities and capacity of facilities. It cross refers to the Council's Local Aggregate Assessment and Waste Needs Assessment, which contain more detailed information and will sit alongside and complement the Annual Monitoring Report. In addition, it reports on work undertaken by the Council to meet the Duty to Cooperate.

 

The Cabinet Member for Environment is RECOMMENDED:

 

(a)      to approve the Oxfordshire Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report 2017 (Calendar Year) in the Annex to this report;

 

(b)      to authorise the Director for Planning & Place to carry out any necessary final editing of the Minerals and Waste Annual Monitoring Report 2017 (Calendar Year) for publication on the County Council website.
