Received: 14/10/2019

Respondent: Axis Land Partnerships

Agent: Carter Jonas

Representation Summary:

Agree that the differentiation between strategic and non-strategic sites is reasonable and sensible. The Councils' have set out Typical Assumptions for Built Out Rates, excluding strategic sites, at Figure 17. This figure does not include all of the information contained at Figure 16. The reasoning for this is not clear. It is also noted that the Councils' have included information on peak delivery but not lowest delivery rates. The most robust approach is considered to be in utilising average figures as this will capture the greatest fluctuations in delivery. Need to take account of the fact that Huntingdonshire Local Plan Inspector modified the delivery rates anticipated for their strategic allocations.

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.
