Respondent: Laragh House Developments Limited

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 028 of the NPPG is considered to provide useful clarification regarding the Councils' position that the housing trajectories for Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire will be considered together for the purposes of phasing of housing delivery, including for calculating 5-year housing land supply. The guidance is clear in that this applies to areas with joint local plans. South Cambridgeshire District Council and Cambridge City Council do not have a joint local plan and their respective plans contain annual housing requirement figures on a single authority basis. It is not, therefore, considered that the Councils' considering their housing trajectories together for the purpose of calculating five year housing land supply accords with national guidance.

The information contained within the uploaded Housing Land Supply Assessment makes clear that the Councils', whether considered separately or jointly, are not able to demonstrate a five year housing land supply of deliverable sites in accordance with the requirements of the NPPF.
