|Document Link:||BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - HOUSING, Housing Requirement, Q7|
|Representation:||We do not have a view on the exact figure, but the impact on the|
historic environment will be important.
The capacity for the area to accommodate new housing development whilst
maintaining its historic environment should be a key consideration, so that the quality and character of neighbourhoods, towns and villages is conserved. Integrating consideration of the historic environment into plan making alongside other considerations is a key principle of sustainable development. Where less successful neighbourhoods are proposed for redevelopment opportunities for enhancement should be a priority. Allocations should be considered in the most sustainable locations and should get the right densities and character appropriate to the area. This will require a careful and detailed analysis - the historic environment is a critical factor.
