Meeting of Churches Group for New Housing 18.9.12
This is a public summary of the meeting where denominational representatives considered the following on behalf of the wider church:
Previous joint meeting with members of the Churches Group for Local Unity, which we thought was well worthwhile. We considered some of the issues about starting a new church in a new housing area in relation to an 'LEP' arangement and continued to think of ways forward that the churches may want to develop.
Government announcements re new housing and changes to the planning prcess
The planned meeting with the Minister for Planning and Decentralisation was now in jeopardy as Greg Clark MP who had agreed to meet with us in November, had been moved in a Cabinet Reshuffle. We agreed to see if his replacement, Nick Boles MP would fulfil the diary arrangement, and considered alternatives if this were not possible.
106 Consultation from Government which we agreed to make a response to on behalf of those people present in our meeting.
