The inclusion of selected rural villages in the settlement hierarchiy is supported, as is the method for identifying settlements as SRVs.

Potential housing site allocations

Representation ID: 4882

Received: 30/10/2015

Respondent: Grace Homes

Agent: Pegasus

Representation Summary:

The range of growth options for each SRV is welcomed. The Local Plan could provide more certainty (in line with the Planning Practice Guidance) by allocating a wider range of site than those currenlty proposed across all levels of the settlement hierarchy, including SRVs.

Respondent: Grace Homes

Agent: Pegasus

Representation Summary:

Grace Homes consider that the various distribution options are unnecessarily complex and the approach to the indicative figures for all the settlement is not overly clear. Further explanation of the distribution figures at Appendix C is required. A more flexible approach to development in SRVs is needed and the options should reflect the availability of sites and development opportunities within settlements.
Grace Homes accepts that the development of a SDA is likely to be required to meet housing need but does not have a fixed view on the most appropriate location for the SDA. The provision of 2 SDAs cannot be supported as it is considered to restrict housing supply elsewhere in the district.

Option 6: Lutterworth SDA

Representation ID: 4887

Received: 30/10/2015

Respondent: Grace Homes

Agent: Pegasus

Representation Summary:

Grace Homes accepts that the development of a SDA is likely to be required to meet housing need but does not have a fixed view on the most appropriate location for the SDA. Rural development, including at Selected Rural Villages, could complement a single SDA strategy by providing shorter term development opportunities. This is an important factor to consider given the requirmement for the Council to be able to deliver a five year housing land supply +20% buffer.
