(i)     The deletion of paragraph 53 of Part 2 Section 5B (Director of Regeneration) of the constitution; and

 

(ii)    The amendment of paragraph 57 of Part 2 Section 5B (Director of Regeneration) of the constitution so that the threshold applied to a requirement for Committee determination is where six or more adverse representations based on material planning considerations have been received.
