Representation 11165 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Mr S Ruffell represented by Strutt & Parker (Mr Michael Ward)

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - HOUSING, Housing Requirement, Q7
Representation: OAN should be seen as a minimum, rather than a ceiling. This is confirmed through Government Policy. Therefore the Draft Joint Local Plan should recognise the OAN as a minimum.

NPPF paragraph 14 emphasises that Local Plans should meet OAN with sufficient flexibility to adopt rapid change. Aiming for a higher figure will make the plan more likely to be 'future proof'. Governments consultation on standardised methodology sets a higher OAN. The current drafting of the option does not make allowances to cover an increased OAN. Wording such as minimum target must be incorporated.
