Draft Local Plan - Supplementary Consultation

Local Housing Need

Representation ID: 9295

Received: 20/03/2019

Respondent: Duchy Homes Ltd

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

Given the findings of the Employment Land Review (2017), we query whether there is adequate evidence regarding employment needs to answer this question.
There is scope for an uplift in the housing requirement as a result of the HS2-related growth, as well the potential to capitalise on the clear need for wider than local employment growth identified through evidence such as the 2015 West Midlands Strategic Employment Site Study (WMSESS), which identifies the M42 corridor as the area of highest demand for strategic industrial and commercial uses (Area A). UPdated WMSESS likely to be published before draft Plan is adopted.

Question 23 - Site 8 - Hampton Road

Representation ID: 9298

Received: 20/03/2019

Respondent: Duchy Homes Ltd

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

Only two sites have been identified for residential development within and around Dorridge (Site 8: Hampton Road, capacity 300-350 and Site 9: Arden Triangle, capacity 600), both of which are large sites. There is no evidence provided on the deliverability of these sites, include the timescales for housing to come forward. However, smaller Sites such as our Client's, are more deliverable within the early years of the Plan. This will help to address the known affordability issues in Dorridge and the wider Borough.

Question 39 - Red Sites

Representation ID: 9300

Received: 20/03/2019

Respondent: Duchy Homes Ltd

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

Yes, we consider our Client's Site (Site 1) should be reassessed as a 'green' site in light of the information we have provided in response to question 2. Related to this, the relocation of the village hall from Site 1 to Site 2 should also be assessed as suitable for inclusion within the draft Plan to facilitate this.

Question 40 - Affordable Housing Approach

Representation ID: 9301

Received: 20/03/2019

Respondent: Duchy Homes Ltd

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

This approach would cause uncertainty for developers and the Council and is not likely to work in practice. It would not be clear how much affordable housing which will be delivered through the draft Plan. If the Council allocate sufficient sites which have proportionate evidence regarding their viability and deliverability, this would be the best way of addressing the delivery of much-needed affordable housing.
