NPPF Changes Consultation 2015

Ensuring Housing Is Delivered On Land Allocated In Plans - Page 9

Question 15.

Do you support the proposal to strengthen the starter homes exception site policy? If not why not?

  • A list of constraints in the local plan should be broad enough to cover sites in the Green Belt or areas of high landscape value and biodiversity. Some general guidance in the NPPF may be acceptable but on the basis that local plan policies should be paramount in setting out specific circumstances. 
  • We have reservations about giving so much priority to starter homes at the expense of low cost rental, especially social housing. We object strongly to low cost rented houses being sacrificed for market sector starter homes.
