New Local Plan Options

Why do we need to build more houses?

Representation ID: 2402

Received: 28/10/2015

Respondent: The Planning Bureau Ltd.

Representation Summary:

McCarthy and Stone wish to reiterate that the Council shold properly and positively plan for the needs of its older residents in later iterations of the Local Plan.

It is concerning that there is no mention of the need to provide specialist housing for older people in the Issues and Options consultation, In our previous representation to the Local Plan (Scoping Report April 2013) we provided evidence of existing and projected housing need for older people. Should the Council fail to plan properly in this regard it would be contrary to both the guidance in the NPPG and NPPF.
