  5. 5. Delivering Growth Priorities
  6. 6. LEP Strategy Jigsaw • Framework = Strategy for Growth • Delivery Portal = web based for on-going update • Spatial Plan= integration of key spatial planning issues in the LEP • Evidence base
  7. 7. Why a Spatial Plan? • Loss of regional planning layer created strategic planning vacuum • Need to embed other planning priorities into the LEP agenda to complement ‘Delivering Growth’ • Voluntary partnership of private, public and environmental planners ‘to boldly go’ • Leadership and vision (Dave Carter/Craig Jordan)
  8. 8. Evolution • Launch of planning charter (February 2012) • Visioning events cross LEP (September 2012) * including Rufopoly- (led to themed groups ) • Scenario Building and Testing (Nov-Dec 2012) • Conference (April 2013) • Spatial Strategy Draft LEP Board (June 2013) • Public Consultation (Oct-Dec 2013) • Document Revision • Launch (Spring 2014)
  9. 9. Conceptual Framework • Economy (Jobs ; GVA) • Community (Education; well being; healthy living) • Environment (Biodiversity, CO2, Enrich environment • 2 cross cutting themes Sustainability Connectivity

  11. 11. Mapping of Local Plan Allocations (Economy)
  12. 12. Mapping of Local Plan Allocations (Housing Sites)
  13. 13. Distinguishing Features • Long term flexible plan continually refreshed in light of feedback • Non-statutory plan; involvement based on perceived value and need • Using existing/proposed local plans as base to look at strategic gaps and opportunities • Commission research to fill gaps (e.g. housing need, employment land) with other LEPS
  14. 14. Key Issues for the Long Term • Spatial plan process as expression of Duty to Cooperate (tensions vs opportunities) • Significant housing shortfall based on CLG projections (30% shortfall: 110k/153k) • Housing markets and other Objectives/Policy areas transgress LEP boundaries • Understated role of agriculture and the fringe • Perceived neglect of community and environment stakeholders (NIA and LNP) • Additionality provided for by a LEP-led focus
  15. 15. Take Home Messages • Planners are the facilitators of enterprise • Whole can be greater than sum of parts • Process of plan formation matters as much as the plan outcome • Spatial plan is boldly going…….. into regional planning void • BUT Beware of LEP or any sectoral fetish
  16. 16. Finally • Please provide feedback via the web consultation and survey questionnaire. • http://centreofenterprise.com/sprgcon/ Contact alister.scott@bcu.ac.uk @bcualisterscott
