The NPPF does not apply a sequential approach to site selection. 3.8 The National Planning Policy Framework does not contain a sequential approach to the development of previously developed land. This has been confirmed by the Secretary of State in a recent recovered appeal decision [APP/U4230/A11/2157433 paragraph 14]. Therefore we consider that Policy SS7 is not sound.

Mactaggart & Mickel notes the Council's commitment to securing development on previously developed land and the Council's approach to a minimum target of 40% of new development being on such land. The NPPF (Para. 111) suggests that local planning authorities should consider the case for setting a locally appropriate target for the use of brownfield land. A minimum target of 40% appears to be unjustified having regard to the evidence base and does not appear to reflect sensibly the site allocati

The Plan does not deal with 4 crucial "aspects of development phasing ... Employment land before housing development, incremental affordable housing, infrastructure and incremental growth" should be addressed to avoid the imbalances that currently exist. Ref: Phasing of Development

Policy SS7 Phasing of Previously Developed Land is not justified. The NPPF does not support such an approach; the presumption is in favour of sustainable development. The emphasis is on taking a positive approach to development. Paragraph 17 of the NPPF sets out the Core Planning Principles – plans should take account of market signals, such as land prices and affordability, and set out a clear strategy for allocating sufficient land which is suitable for development in their area, taking

Distribution of Housing Growth 2.24 The client accepts the current wording of Policy SS7 – Phasing of Previously Developed Land which states: "A sequential approach to development will seek the early development of previously developed, derelict or underused land in settlements before the development of Greenfield land, where this would not prevent sufficient development of business, housing (particularly affordable housing) and other uses necessary to achieve the overall vision and stra

The Local Plan's housing strategy is heavily dependent upon the development of greenfield sites. Such sites are, given the circumstances of the District with limited previously developed land, a necessary and legitimate element of the housing provision. Indeed the development of such sites are necessary across the whole of the plan period and there is no practical purpose in seeking to apply a sequential approach as the Policy intends. Moreover, the 40% estimate of previously developed land is a

RPS is concerned that the Policy SS7 seeks to implement a sequential approach to delivering development sites without providing any local justification that such an approach is applicable to this primarily rural district and that 40% of the housing requirements of the district can realistically be delivered on previously developed land on a continuous five-year basis. It would appear from an assessment of the evidence base supporting the Local Plan that there is no thorough assessment confirmin
