Omission, it is essential that a mix of dwellings, types and sizes are delivered across the district.

We support the modification to Policy SP19 which supports the provision of an appropriate mix of dwellings having regard to the SHMA recommendations as may be reviewed or superseded. The policy now acknowledges that the appropriate mix could change throughout the Plan period. The Policy, subject to the proposed modifications, is considered to now be effective and therefore "sound".

There is concern on the effectiveness of the policy if the LPA cannot demonstrate a 5 year land supply and that proposals are open to "sustainable development" This does not resolve the issue of housing affordability in this area in letting large housing to go over allocation in a mix. It should be strongly encouraged that housing mixes are an important factor and a priority to the LPA.

Other Main Modifications are supported, specifically MM27(the stepped trajectory), MM42 (policy SP19 - the mix of dwellings), and MM44 (policy SP20 – affordable housing).
