Councillor Eamonn O’Brien, Leader and Cabinet Member for Strategic Growth, presented the report which presented a draft Strategic Regeneration Framework document and sought approval to go out for formal public and stakeholder consultation. Members supported the aspirations for the Town Centre and for the Mill Gate, noting its current success should be built upon, diversifying the offer and ensuring public engagement and buy in.
1. Provided approval for the Mill Gate JV to carry out a formal period of public and stakeholder consultation on the draft strategic regeneration framework; and
2. Noted that following the public and stakeholder consultation, a full review of consultation feedback will be undertaken and required amendments will be made before the Strategic Regeneration Framework is brought back to Cabinet for formal adoption in Spring 2024.
Reasons for the decision:
It is important for the JV to continue to engage with the Public and other stakeholders in order to refine the emerging vision for the Mill Gate estate via the Strategic Regeneration Framework. Public and Stakeholder consultation and development of the Strategic Regeneration Framework for Mill Gate enables large scale development to progress in accordance with the emerging vision of the Mill Gate Joint Venture vehicle and the strategic objectives set out during the acquisition of the asset.
