Representation 12989 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Ipswich Borough Council (

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - HOUSING, Housing Requirement, Q7
Representation: Reference should be made to the Ipswich and Suffolk Coastal OAN to show IHMA overall requirements. Whilst it mentions outputs from the SPIF will be considered, there is no infrastructure-led strategic growth option put forward. The Government's proposed formula for assessing housing need increases the housing requirement for Babergh and Mid Suffolk and Suffolk Coastal, whilst reducing the requirement for Ipswich. The SHMA figure for Ipswich Borough recognised uplift for economic growth and the correct OAN for Ipswich Borough remains 519 dwellings per annum. The total for IHMA is therefore 2,026 dwellings, 240 per annum more than in the SHMA.
