Revised Interim Planning Policy for the Release of Housing Land Consultation (1st May to 29th May 2012)
The Council has recently agreed the draft Revised Interim Planning Policy for the Release of Housing Land for consultation. This document sets out the Council's policy approach to maintaining a five year supply of deliverable housing land to be used as an interim measure pending the adoption of the Cheshire East Local Plan.
The new National Planning Policy Framework requires local planning authorities to identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against their housing requirements with an additional buffer of 5% to ensure choice and competition (the buffer should be 20% where there has been a persistent under delivery of housing).
The purpose of this Revised Interim Planning Policy is to set out a policy to manage the release of additional land for residential development through the consideration of planning applications, to maintain a five year supply, as an interim measure pending the adoption of the Core Strategy, in a manner that would not prejudice the consideration of alternative options for the development strategy for the Local Plan.
We would welcome your comments on this draft Revised Interim Planning Policy for the Release of Housing Land, as well as the associated Sustainability Appraisal and Habitats Regulations Assessment Documents.
These documents can be accessed through our consultation portal by clicking on the link below the Cheshire East logo above or our website at www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/localplan
The consultation period for this document will start tomorrow (Tuesday 1st May) and will run until 5pm on 29th May 2012.
Further information on the consultations can be obtained from the Cheshire East web site www.cheshireeast.gov.uk/localplan or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01270 685893.
