Representation ID: 9716

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Avison Young

Representation Summary:

The Council's approach under Step 1 - Site Hierarchy Criteria - is considered appropriate and compliant with NPPF.
Considered appropriate to seek land for housing in low performing Green Belt due to evidence in SHELAA on lack of supply on non-Green Belt sites.
Agree that DLP Site 16 is a Priority 5 site and suitable for Green Belt release as it lies within a parcel of low-performance Green Belt with strong, defensible boundaries and is proximate to the facilities and services of Solihull town centre.
