Local Plan Period Paragraph 22 of the National Planning Policy Framework (February 2019) states that "Strategic policies should look ahead over a minimum 15 year period from adoption, to anticipate and respond to longterm requirements and opportunities, such as those arising from major improvements in infrastructure".

What is the Local Plan and why are we reviewing Comment regarding Para 1.8 – The reason SSDC are required to conduct the review is that the economically led plan that sought to deliver 15,950 dwellings at 725 per annum proved to be over ambitious, which led the plan to be out of date within 6 months of adoption. The SSDC targets have not been met for 10 out of 12 years of the plan, partially due to not achieving the economic growth projections. Monitoring has demonstrated housing delivery is a

It is noted in Figure 1.2 on Page 10 that the Local Plan has to be silent or out of date for material considerations to be taken into account. Section 38(6) of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 requires that "where in making any determination under the planning Acts, regard is to be had to the development plan, the determination shall be made in accordance with the plan unless material consideration indicates otherwise". It is therefore possible that material considerations could ind
