FMM006

Representation ID: 3710

Received: 14/01/2021

Respondent: Amarillo Ltd and Scandale Ltd

Agent: Planning Prospects

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The distribution of housing required throughout the District is unsuitable and unsustainable. There is a substantial over reliance on Aylesbury and less sustainable villages. In comparison, Winslow, a highly sustainable top-tier settlement, is not making a proportionate contribution and FMM006 is reducing this further. As a result, more housing development should be directed towards Winslow. Winslow’s contribution should be increased further to reflect its anticipated East West rail station and location within the growth ARC generally.

Change suggested by respondent:

Winslow’s contribution to the District’s housing needs should be substantially increased.

FMM012

Representation ID: 3711

Received: 14/01/2021

Respondent: Amarillo Ltd and Scandale Ltd

Agent: Planning Prospects

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

FMM012 sets out that the Council’s suggested buffer of housing sites over its Objectively Assessed Need will fall from 5.7% to 5.4%. We would expect at least a 10% buffer to ensure that needs are met.

Change suggested by respondent:

Additional allocations need to be identified, to spread the risk of relying heavily on strategic scale allocations around one settlement (Aylesbury).

FMM012 sets out that the Council’s suggested buffer of housing sites over its Objectively Assessed Need will fall from 5.7% to 5.4%. However, this still does not represent sufficient contingency to provide sufficient flexibility should identified sites not come forward at the rate or density anticipated in the Plan. Given the substantial reliance on delivery from strategic sites around Aylesbury, the potential for the District’s housing needs not being met over the Plan period is exacerbated. In such circumstances, the Council should look to identify more deliverable sites to ‘spread the risk’ if it is to meet its identified needs and deliver its planned requirement. We would expect at least a 10% buffer to ensure that needs are met.
