|Representation:||If the JLP were to merely aim to meet the OAN, it would not be sufficiently flexible to respond to changes circumstances, such as allocated sites failing to come forward as expected. Failing to ensure the Local Plan's housing target exceeds the minimum OAN risks a situation in which the JLP fails to identify an adequate five-year housing land supply during the entirety of the plan period, which would render the local plan out of date.|
Does not make allowances to cover an increased OAN. The JLP should seek to ensure that potential increases in housing need / Government requirements are accounted for.
