Greater Cambridge Housing Trajectory and Five Year Housing Land Supply - Main Document

Representation ID: 168508

Received: 14/10/2019

Respondent: Laragh House Developments Limited

Agent: Carter Jonas

Representation Summary:

Land north of Worts Causeway

Despite ongoing pre-application discussions, there is no timetable available for the submission of an outline application. Timescales associated with other comparable allocations on the Cambridge Fringe have therefore been considered. Utilising the average figure is therefore considered to be the most reasonable approach. The site is currently controlled by a promoter rather than a developer or housebuilder. The evidence demonstrates that it is unlikely that housing completions will begin on site within five years. Accordingly, the site is not deliverable in accordance with the NPPF definition and should be removed from the trajectory.

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.
