Agenda for the AGM:

Draft Vision statement to be considered at the AGM:

 

Additional AGM Agenda Item: Community Infrastructure Levy Consultation.
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) allows local authorities in England and Wales to raise funds from new development for strategic infrastructure which supports growth. Brighton & Hove City Council has published a CIL Draft Charging Schedule which sets out proposed rates of charge to be levied upon developers. This is open for consultation between 28 March 2018 to 13 June 2018. The Brighton Marina Neighbourhood Forum Steering Group has prepared a draft response to the consultation and would like to receive comments from forum members on this draft response for consideration by the forum at the AGM. Click on these links to see the draft charging schedule and the draft response letter.

What is a Neighbourhood Forum?
Neighbourhood planning legislation, introduced by the Government under the Localism Act, gives communities direct power to develop a shared vision for their neighbourhood, to shape its development and growth, and to establish general planning policies for the development and use of land in the neighbourhood area. These are described legally as ‘neighbourhood development plans’. For more information please visit the ‘Step-by-Step Guide’.

Brighton Marina Neighbourhood Area
Brighton & Hove City Council formally designated the Brighton Marina Neighbourhood Forum and the Brighton Marina Business / Neighbourhood Area (shown in the plan below) on the 18th June 2015.
