4.1 To review and amend the project plan
A timetable suggested by Bill Bloxsome was reviewed in the Gant chart.
The steering group agreed that the next step is to present the draft NDP & site assessment report to the Parish Council in an extraordinary meeting in August which would occur 7 days before the next scheduled ordinary Parish council meeting. This will be the first sight the councillors will have had of these documents. They will be provided a copy to review following this walk through and will be asked to provide their approval in the scheduled August Parish Council meeting.
Once the approval has been received from the Parish council the Parish clerk will write to the site owners informing them of the outcome of their site. Lastly, there will be a public consultation in September.
The steering group agreed not to pursue the survey requirement as previously discussed.
Action: Chris to update the Gantt chart with the agreed steps including the removal of the survey requirement
Action: Andrew to discuss and agree the process with the Parish Council.
Action: Bob to draft a proposal on how to conduct the public consultation (of the site assessment report) in line with the current Coronavirus guidelines to include how to obtain feedback.

The deliverables document was reviewed, updated and Andrew will save this on the Steering Group Google Drive.

Action: Andrew to check if there are any outstanding actions for Parish Council regarding the draft HRA and draft environment report.
