|Representation:||Should be alternative options. Government standardised approach in establishing an OAN figure, it is advised that the OAN figure is revised in response to such changes. This may incur delays in the development of the Plan, but in terms of opportunity cost it is better to wait for the proposed changes, rather than pursue the submission of the Local Plan and then finding it not to be in accordance with national policy. |
Suggested that the OAN figure should be revised so that it serves as the minimum number of homes that need to be delivered, rather than a target to hit. This would encourage a greater delivery of housing and thus ensure an increase in supply, thus assisting in tackling the Districts' persistent under-delivery.
