Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Scale of Growth for the District and the Main Settlements Housing Policy SS4: District Wide Housing Provision

  • Comment ID: 1807
The comprehensive demographic and employment analysis undertaken by the Council comprises a robust bank of evidence and accordingly RPS broadly supports the contents of Policy SS4. We welcome the incorporation of the changes we proposed in our previous representations which sought the replacement of 'about' with 'at least' when referring to the housing target for the District. Although the policy suggests the housing target of at least 15,950 is a minimum and flexible, it is suggested that the

For the reasons set out in this submission I am of the view that the Local Plan fails the NPPF tests of soundness. 1. The suggested approach to establishing a housing requirement does not represent the most appropriate strategy when considered against the developed and developing evidence from population and economic projections. 2. The population projection for 2028 (1) shows a significant lower population figure than the SSDC recommended housing figures would be required to support. The 2011

Scale Of the development in Yeovil It is a generally held view that the SSDC have hyped the the numbers of dwellings and industrial units required in the area in order to satisfy the needs of a much favoured developer who has land ownership within the area proposed for the Urban Extension. If the numbers are brought to a more realistic level then the Urban Extension is not triggered which would mean that building within the Civil Parish of East Coker would not be needed saving Grade 1 land for

Abbey Manor Group objects to the housing provision outlined in the Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan (2006-2028). The housing provision identified would not provide a sufficient supply of housing to meet housing need and demand over the plan period. As such, it is considered that Policy SS4 cannot be considered as being positively prepared, justified, or consistent with national planning policy. Accordingly this element of the emerging Local Plan is currently considered to be unsound

SS4: DISTRICT WIDE HOUSING PROVISION AND SUPPORTING TEXT PARAS 4.70-4.80 1 David Wilson Homes (DWH) object to the proposed district wide housing provision set out in Policy SS4 and the supporting text. 2 The housing figure set in Policy SS4 is not justified and not consistent with National Policy or based on appropriate evidence. 3 In particular: * There needs to be clear evidence to suggest that the figure for housing derived from the RSS, 21,670 dwellings to 2028 is not appropriate. This f

Objection on the basis that the scale of housing growth within the District has been reduced. This is a reduction on the Proposed South West RSS requirement based on further local evidence; and reduced again, being linked to employment growth which is reduced due to the current economic climate. * No reference is made to the most recent population projections just released. * No account has been taken of cross boundary issues and how to deal with the implications of potential under provision a

Paragraph 4.72 of the emerging Local Plan states: "the most important determinant of District Growth should be the employment growth projections . . . reflecting the Council's aspirations for growth and regeneration and the potential the economy has for growth". Our client agrees that this represents the most appropriate basis for the future planning of the area and welcomes this approach to forward planning. However, the Council's analysis raises a number of areas of concern and the below rep
