Decisions:

155.1   Councillor Ellesmere explained that the Suffolk Framework for Inclusive Growth had been developed as part of the collaborative work on devolution and had been funded from a Central Government ‘Transformation Challenge Award’. The framework highlighted the A14 corridor and the area around Ipswich as the key areas for economic growth and so it was an important document for Ipswich Borough Council.

 

It was RESOLVED:

 

a)        that the contents of the document entitled: Suffolk’s Framework for Inclusive Growth – a Summary (Appendix 1 to the report) be noted;

 

b)           that the Plan at page 3 of the document entitled: Suffolk’s Framework for Inclusive Growth – a Summary (Appendix 1 to the report) be supported as the appropriate plan for the strategic distribution of growth across Suffolk;

 

c)           that the document entitled: Suffolk’s Framework for Inclusive Growth – a Summary (Appendix 1 to the report)  should be used to: (a) inform County-wide work on the use of ‘Pooled Business Rates’; (b) support and inform responses to third party consultations on growth and infrastructure; and, (c) support and prioritise - on a local and county-wide basis -  funding bids for infrastructure to the LEP and other bodies (be they national or regional);

 

d)           that future versions of Local Plans for Ipswich Borough have due regard to the contents of the document entitled: Suffolk’s Framework for Inclusive Growth – a Summary (Appendix 1 to the report) and the full AECOM report referred to at paragraph 1.5 of the report; and

 

e)           that the Chief Executive write to the other 7 Council’s in Suffolk to inform them of the Borough Council’s position (i.e. Recommendations 13.1 to 13.4 above).

 

Reasons: To make it clear as to the status to be given to the Suffolk’s Framework for Inclusive Growth, what it will be used for in the future and that the Council’s position should be appropriately communicated to the other councils in Suffolk.
