Option 3: Urban

Representation ID: 3215

Received: 30/10/2015

Respondent: George Burton ARCHITECTURE AND ECOLOGY Ltd

Representation Summary:

This option represents very limited housing in the rural areas. With insufficient expansion the factors that make village life sustainable will be eroded to the detriment of existing residents. This could result in stagnation of smaller settlements and result in ultimately disproportionately higher property values in those locations.

Received: 30/10/2015

Respondent: George Burton ARCHITECTURE AND ECOLOGY Ltd

Representation Summary:

The current policy on limits to development is too rigid and unresponsive to demand. Changing the policy to that laid out will provide flexibility and enable settlements to grow appropriately

Proposed approach

Representation ID: 3238

Received: 30/10/2015

Respondent: George Burton ARCHITECTURE AND ECOLOGY Ltd

Representation Summary:

An increase in the level of affordable housing required, especially on smaller developments, will tend to make them unviable and may lead to fewer developments in rural areas due to developers seeking to build elsewhere where the policies may be less stringent. We would suggest a minimum threshold of 10 units be considered this would promote and maintain smaller developers who may have suffered from lower affordable housing thresholds in recent years.
