VALP Main Modifications

MM010

Representation ID: 3259

Received: 10/12/2019

Respondent: Hamlin Estates

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The plan seeks to increase the overall target for housing delivery - which is welcomed. This includes an increase for Middle Villages - which is also welcomed.

However, there is no explicit provision for these villages (or other settlements) to accept, where appropriate) additional houses on unallocated sites. It is known that a number of settlements are stating, explicitly, that they have no further allocations so are 'full up' and need not even consider any other sites, no matter how sustainable any other site(s) may be.

Change suggested by respondent:

The VALP should make explicit that the housing totals are minima and, where additional housing is required to meet these minima other sites can come forward as 'windfall' sites.
