Representation 3551 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Bentley Parish Council (Dr Michael Bamford)

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - HOUSING, Housing Requirement, Q7
Representation: The Parish appreciates the need for a new, refreshed, evidence based local plan. It accepts the need for an objectively assessed housing growth requirement, based on projected population growth, and the need for economic growth in Babergh, but notes there are very considerable variables in play which may materially change prospects for growth (e.g. Brexit). Whilst it is desirable to have an overview of desirable and achievable growth within a District, this will always be subject to the significant external pressures of political change, and external economic pressures e.g. the London housing and job market and consequent commuter demand. Local housing growth has been subject to piecemeal planning applications and external imperatives such as the NPPF
