Emerging Policy DM30: The Density of Residential Development - The Written Ministerial Statement - March 2015 introduces new Nationally Described Space Standards for housing. These regulations are optional and the Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) (ID: 56-002-20150327) requires LPAs to gather evidence to determine whether there is a need for additional standards and the viability implications. The Council has not demonstrated there is a need or provided evidence regarding viability and therefore we object to this policy.

Core Strategy and Policies DPD Review - Pre-Submission of Main Modifications

Respondent: Home Builders Federation Ltd (HBF)

Representation:

The requirement that new residential development complies with the Nationally Described Space Standard is unjustified. The Council has not demonstrated that the relevant tests set out in the NPPG have been satisfied (need, viability and timing). The Council should provide a justification for requiring the Nationally Described Space Standard. Given the scale of the unmet need in Ipswich, we would question the efficacy of adopting the standard. The plan should also specify a reasonable transition period to provide for legacy projects or land transactions currently underway. The Council should have regard to the effect the standard will have on affordability.
