NPPF puts local plans at the heart of the
planning system
“it is highly desirable that local planning authorities should
have an up-to-date plan in place” paragraph 12
“proactively drive and support sustainable economic
development to deliver the homes, businesses and industrial
units, infrastructure and thriving local places that the country
needs” paragraph 17
“Significant weight should be placed on the need to support
economic growth through the planning system” paragraph 19
Presentation to Solace Summit 2014
Now nearly 60% of strategic local
plans are adopted

Presentation to Solace Summit 2014
The Planning Inspectorate has record
numbers of plans at examination
Presentation to Solace Summit 2014
A number of issues are critical to
successful plans and faster examinations
• Need to meet the current Objectively
Assessed Need.
• Identification of 5 year housing land supply,
plus 5% or 20% buffer
• Need for a robust Sustainability Appraisal
and appropriate public consultation,
including on proposed modifications.
• Duty to Cooperate
Presentation to Solace Summit 2014
The Planning Inspectorate is helping
local authorities adopt a local plan
• One to one advisory
visits
• Procedural guidance
• Working with DCLG
and the Planning
Advisory Service

Identifying our priorities...

trying to tackle...

Tackle key economic conditions
and harness our latent potential
• LCR GVA per head is £15,600, UK it is £20,900 - equates to an £8.2bn gap
• The gap has remained largely unchanged over the last decade
To tackle this gap we need:
GVA per head per annum
• 18,500 businesses to match the UK
average business density

Strategic Project B: LCR Freight
& Logistics Hub
SuperPORT opportunity
• Market facing opportunity
• 90% of imports enter via South of England but
60% consumed North of midlands
• Global (& UK) logistics industry changing –
Liverpool ideally placed to take opportunities
• £340m ‘Liverpool 2’ project increases capacity x 3
= private sector investment in opportunity
• However, it needs complementary
investment to capture growth/jobs
• Freight network = transport
• Logistics space required
= bringing forward land & sites
• Skills for Growth = skills
• Supply chain & export opportunities
too = business growth

Put in place the right structures
(for you)...
Structures are complex...
• Every place is different
• Different economic potential = different priorities
• Different path dependency...how did we get to here requires different
response?
• Different institutions
• Essential therefore that every place is ‘enabled’ to do what is best for them...
• Government adds to complexity
• National vs local vs supra-local service funding & delivery
• Discretionary funding through ‘initiativitus’
• Local Authorities / Combined Authorities / Mayors
• Transport Authorities and Local Transport Bodies
• LEPs (being strategic or delivering?)
• Cannot easily ‘fix’ the national complexity...
Each local area must find its own ‘institutional fix’ –
what is best for you to enable local growth?
32
Our LEP...working with a CA
• As a Statutory Process the implications of the CA are primarily for Local
Authorities but obviously, it needs to include arrangements with other
bodies – such as the LEP
• But – joint recognition of need for a collaborative approach with the aim of
‘doing things better’ as a collective in the City Region
Outcomes of the process are:
• LEP is a voting member on the Combined Authority securing the private
sector a voice at the top table – this is unique to Liverpool City Region
• This allows Local Transport Body ‘transition’ = simpler structures
• LEP responsibilities from Government remain unchanged; but we work
closely with the CA to ensure delivery of more investment, jobs and growth
• LEP recognised via the CA’s own protocols as the lead body for economic
development at a strategic level
‘Best in class’ institutional fix?
Binding collaborative working in the City Region
33
Make sure you deliver...
34
Delivery is key
• Effort must be about achieving something...
• Local Investment
• Local Jobs
• Local Growth
• Delivery is therefore essential...
• On time, on budget, well managed
• Achieving an impact – it has to make a change
• We can only expect devolution IF we deliver
• Proof will be in the doing not the rhetoric
• Those who deliver will deserve devolution
• As much as anything else – work with the private sector
