Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q16

Representation ID: 13165

OBJECT Taylor Wimpey represented by Boyer Planning (Mr. James Bailey)

Summary:

We do not consider that there is a need for a specific policy which relates to Nationally Described Space Standards, as this is dealt with on a national level.

If the Council determined that such a policy should be included within the emerging Local Plan reference should be made to viability and the need for new developments to be viable and Nationally Designed Space Standards should be met where possible.

Representation ID: 12998

COMMENT Ipswich Borough Council (

Summary:

We feel you should include a requirement for new dwellings to meet the Nationally Described Space Standards as published by the Government in 2015. This is consistent with the adopted Local Plan for Ipswich Borough (February 2017). It is also essential that a good mix of affordable and market housing built to good standards around the fringe of Ipswich is delivered and which can address the affordable needs for Ipswich (239 households per annum representing 47.9% of annual projected household growth in the Borough) as identified in the Strategic Housing Market Assessment.

Representation ID: 12835

OBJECT Persimmon Homes (Anglia) (Ms Laura Townes)

Summary:

There is no evidence that there is a need to adopt space standards in Babergh and Mid Suffolk for either market or affordable dwellings. The adoption of these standards would worsen the existing affordability issues in the Districts, reduce the overall number of homes delivered and impact on viability. Therefore, the adoption of the standards is not supported.

COMMENT Gladman (Mr Richard Crosthwaite)

Summary:

If the Councils wish to adopt these standards they must be fully justified by meeting the criteria set out in the NPPG including need, viability and impact on affordability. Care should be taken to ensure that generic arguments are avoided in the justification for the adoption of the higher optional standards for adaptable / accessible dwellings and / or the nationally described space standard. It is incumbent on the Councils to provide a local assessment evidencing the specific
case for Babergh and Mid Suffolk which justifies any such policy requirements.

Representation ID: 12104

OBJECT Gladman (Mr Richard Crosthwaite)

Summary:

The latest SHMA would provide a guide in terms of the potential mix of house types and tenure for
individual proposals. However, the assessment of housing mix within any SHMA represents a fixed
point in time and it would therefore be unreasonable to strictly apply this over the plan period
through a rigid policy mechanism. The housing mix on individual sites should be determined on a
case by case basis according to market conditions to ensure that sites are viable and responsive to
the particular circumstances associated with them.

COMMENT Countryside Properties (Mrs Emma Woods)

Summary:

If the Council wished to adopt the nationally described space standard the Council should not only do so by applying the criteria set out in the NPPG. The NPPG sets out that "Where a need for internal space standards is identified, local planning authorities should provide justification for requiring internal space policies. Local Planning Authorities should take account of the following areas need, viability and timing" (ID: 56-020-20150327).

Representation ID: 9706

SUPPORT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

These standards should be enforced. In the Space Standards for Homes RIBA Report a variety of problems are given, eg Local Authorities will struggle to set the new space standard as it is over complicated, costs too much and will take too long. They have suggested that the government should create a fair housing offer by embedding the Nationally Described Space Standard in building regulations. However, it is important that new dwellings have reasonably sized rooms rather than the occupants being cramped which is not compatible with stress-free living.

SUPPORT Cllr John Hinton

Summary:

One of the few points I can endorse. Nationally we have one of the smallest accommodation indexes in Europe. Usable size of accommodation makes individuals more inclined to optimise their accommodation rather than potentially increase its overall size to give an impression of space and thus waste accommodation availability.

OBJECT Artisan PPS Ltd (Mr. Leslie Short)

Summary:

I think that mandatory space standards are a useful tool depending upon where the thresholds are set but perhaps the National standards are set at too high a level in that they constrain the delivery of imaginative designs for new dwellings and could result in bland uniformity. Standards are useful as long as they are set in the context of a policy which permits exception in the event of a justifiably good design rationale for departure.

COMMENT Endurance Estates represented by Savills (Mr Paul Rowland)

Summary:

Whilst it would appear to be the case that more recent local plans incorporate such standards in their documents , we would suggest that this should not necessarily be the default position. Generally space standards should be determined in the marketplace. Unless the Councils have evidence of overcrowding or dealing with applications for very cramped accommodation there is no need to impose these standards.

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

The Nationally Described Space Standards are a non statutory means of standardising internal space within new dwellings and set out the requirements for the Gross Internal (floor) Area at a defined occupancy level. The Parish Council would see this as a sensible approach to any new builds in the MSDC area however there are concerns that, should these standards be applied to certain designs of Starter homes that it might increase the costs in some more affluent areas to above the £250,000 threshold value to comply with the Housing and Planning Act 2016.

Yes the Plan should have set out criteria for interior space in new dwellings. The Nationally Described Space Standards and perhaps the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) have criteria. The RIBA criteria may be more generous with its internal spacing and therefore consideration to adopting this should be given, but "criteria" should be adopted to provide well built and thought out spaces for families and individuals.
