Consultation: planning for the right homes in the right places

18 September 2017: Consultation: planning for the right homes in the right places

This consultation sets out proposals to standardize the calculation of housing need. The proposed approach starts with the ONS household growth projections, but in order to prioritize development in the least affordable areas applies an uplift based on the house price to income ratio - with the maximum increase capped at 40% above existing plan targets. Consultation closes 9th November 2017.
