Minutes:

It was noted that one of the consultant’s reports, relating to employment land, which informed the statement of common ground, needed to be updated.  Other supporting documents also needed to be checked to ensure that there would be no consequential changes as a result.  As an important matter, it was necessary to ensure that Cabinet and Council had the latest information before them when making a decision. For this reason, Cabinet could not consider Item 5 “Leicester and Leicestershire Statement of Common Ground on Housing and Employment Needs (April 2022)” and it was agreed this report would be brought back at a later date.
