Draft Local Plan - Supplementary Consultation

Local Housing Need

Representation ID: 9712

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: NaCSBA

Representation Summary:

The document does not make a single reference to custom or self build or those wishing to build their own homes. SMBC should publish the level of demand for self build as demonstrated through the self build register. This will inform the Local Plan review to ensure sufficient plots are available. Ascertain a target for self build provision for the Borough. A policy promoting self build must be included in the emerging plan to comply with the NPPF, the Housing and Planning Act, and the Right to build. In line with paragraph 119 of the NPPF allocate sites in the plan to meet the needs of those wishing to self build. Washed over area of green belt should not be removed however a policy should be included stating Custom, self build, starter and affordable homes will be considered acceptable as part of limited infill within existing ribbon developments within the Green Belt where it is demonstrated that they do not have an adverse impact upon the openness and integrity of the wider Green Belt.

Question 34 - Washed Over Green Belt Settlements for Potential Removal

Representation ID: 9713

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: NaCSBA

Representation Summary:

NaCSBA consider there is a strong opportunity to use the green belt designation to promote the types of homes needed within the borough. For example, the green belt designation could remain but the emerging plan could contain a policy which states that on infill sites and within villages in the green belt starter homes, affordable homes and self/custom build homes will be supported. This will prevent unrestricted urban sprawl as per the purpose of the green belt whilst allowing modest, small-scale developments of the type for which there is greatest need. An example is Policy H3 in Coventry City Local Plan. Washed over area of green belt should not be removed however a policy should be included stating Custom, self build, starter and affordable homes will be considered acceptable as part of limited infill within existing ribbon developments within the Green Belt where it is demonstrated that they do not have an adverse impact upon the openness and integrity of the wider Green Belt.
