NPPF Changes Consultation 2015

Ensuring Housing Is Delivered On Land Allocated In Plans - Page 5

How do you see this approach working when the housing policies in the Local Plan are not up to date?

  • Account has to be taken of why the housing policies are not up to date and if there is a good reason. For example, if an Inspector has required modifications to a local plan at an EIP which requires further work, or changes in Government policy which may bring delays in revising a local plan.
  • It is not clear which body will select the additional sustainable sites.  If taken away from the local planning authority, this could lead to unsatisfactory locations if there is no local input. It is not clear at which stage there would be public involvement. Proposals must go through the local plan EIP process and be based on evidence of need.
