Executive Council met today Tuesday, 23 June 2015.

There were three items for discussion on the Open Agenda, the first of which was an application for full development permission for the General Hospital external alterations and extension. ExCo were pleased to advise that full development permission should be granted which will see an extension to the surgical theatre, a new diagnostics suite, and a new bed lift. We look forward to the improvements to healthcare and facilities that this development will bring.

The second item sought approval of the finalised Development Plan for Rupert’s Valley. Recognising the significant changes from the original draft plan, ExCo advised that a further public consultation process be carried out for a minimum period of six weeks, before approval could be granted.

The third item sought ExCo approval for the Aerodrome Regulations 2015. These Regulations relate to access to and activities at the Airport and had previously been discussed in detail with Members. ExCo was therefore able to approve the Aerodrome Regulations 2015.

The meeting concluded at 10.20am.
