To receive the consultation responses following the review of the draft Cumulative Impact Assessment and to seek agreement from the Committee to the publication of the Cumulative Impact Assessment.

Additional documents:


Consideration was given to a report which set out the responses to the consultation exercise carried out following a review of the Authority’s Cumulative Impact Assessment (CIA).


At the meeting of the Committee held on 1 April 2021 (Minute LC7/20 refers) the process for the review of the CIA had been agreed and this included a further report to the committee on the options available.


As a result of the consultation 27 responses had been received from residents, licence holders, Responsible Authority’s and a local business.  Of the responses received 74% of the respondents had agreed that the current area of Whitley Bay should remain in a CIA and 84% of respondents agreed that the current area of Tynemouth should remain in a CIA.


Northumbria Police had provided the crime statistics for the two areas which had supported the continuation of the CIA in Whitley Bay and Tynemouth.


During the consultation exercise a number of additional areas for including in a CIA had been suggested including the Park View Area of Whitley Bay and the North Shields Fish Quay.  It was explained that the current evidence did not support the inclusion of the two areas but that further work could be undertaken and the outcome of the work reported to a future meeting of the Committee.


Resolved that (1) the North Tyneside Cumulative Impact Assessment be published; and

(2) further work be undertaken in relation to the potential inclusion of additional areas in the CIA should the evidence warrant it and the outcome of the work be reported to a future meeting of the Committee.
