  • Comment ID: pol/298

As aforementioned in our response to Policy SP3 we consider that the proposed housing supply of 9,057 units is insufficient to meet Spelthorne's housing requirement of 9,045 units, or 603 dwellings per annum over the plan period (2020 – 2035). This supply has little contingency to account for the questionable delivery of many of the proposed housing supply sites. The Policy states with regard to Specialist Accommodation that 'The provision of well-designed specialist forms of accommodation, inc

Housing Need Croudace Homes welcomes the fact that the provision of 603 homes per annum is expressed as a minimum, but we provide further detail on this matter in our response to Policy ST2. Housing Mix and Standards The Council makes it clear that development proposals will be expected to provide a mix of housing as set out in the Strategic Housing Market Assessment, or similar evidence for market and affordable units. Croudace Homes clearly supports the requirement for new residential devel

The proposed housing requirement should be updated to 9,765 new homes (651 homes per annum) to meet Runnymede's unmet housing need. Draft Policy H1 refers to the need to deliver a wide choice of high-quality homes and to meet a range of accommodation needs. While the NPPF indicates that planning policies should assess and reflect the size, type and tenure of housing needed for different groups, such provision should not be prescriptive so as to be inflexible, restricting the delivery of the mos

We support the aim of draft Policy H1 to encourage the provision of housing for a range of sizes and tenures, appropriate to the location, size and characteristics of the site, as set out in part 2 of the draft Policy. This is in accordance with paragraph 61 of the NPPF which requires planning policies to reflect the need to deliver housing of different sizes, type and tenure based on local needs. However, we note that part 3 of the draft Policy expects proposals to "contribute to meeting ident

In allocating sites the Council should be mindful that to maximize housing supply the widest possible range of sites, by size and market location are required so that house builders of all types and sizes have access to suitable land in order to offer the widest possible range of products. The key to increased housing supply is the number of sales outlets. Whilst some larger sites may have multiple outlets, in general increasing the number of sales outlets available means increasing the number o

The Local Plan should stipulate that the minimum space requirement for all homes including flats will be not less than 60 square metres with three living rooms i.e. the minimum standard should be a two-bedroom flat. The ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms should be no less than two bedrooms to one bathroom both for environmental reasons and in order not to sacrifice living space. As a model for good design the Council should look to the maisonettes that were designed in the 1950s. These types of pro

Policy H1 confirms the housing requirement of 603 pa for the period up to 2035. As we have addressed through the comments in relation to Policy ST2, we consider the Council has underestimated the actual housing figure(s) required. Whilst we support the Council in utilising the standard methodology for assessing housing need and, as stated at footnote 1 of the Plan, reviewing this figure as and when appropriate in accordance with Government guidance, the exact methodology used is unclear as our

Housing Mix We support in principle the provisions of Policy H1: Homes for All in relation to housing mix and standards. Specifically, we advocate for greater flexibility, appreciating the context of a site as well as the wider spatial strategy of the Plan. Sites of an appropriate size should seek to provide a mix of unit sizes, meeting a diverse range of needs and ensuring that a mixed and balanced communities are created. However, it is also important to consider what is appropriate for deli

Housing Mix and Standards states that development proposals will be expected to contribute to meeting identified housing needs by providing a housing mix as set out in the Strategic Housing Market Assessment or any similar evidence for market and affordable units. The Council wants to deliver a wide variety of high quality homes that provide all tenures, types and sizes of housing to meet the needs of the community. This approach is welcomed; although will not be achieved by imposing a Borough
