Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028

9 Housing

9.1 National planning policy supports the creation of sustainable balanced and mixed communities[1]. For South Somerset this means the provision of a high quality, sustainable, balanced housing market, with a mix of housing types, tenures and prices with the flexibility to meet the needs of the changing population[2]. Key issues include the provision of sustainably sited and constructed affordable housing and meeting the needs of the ageing population.
