Reference to the creation of balanced and mixed communities is welcomed. The HCA
particularly supports the target of reducing an existing proliferation of one housing type within an area. The HCA would wish to ensure that the policy context allows the market to respond to meeting shortfalls in particular types of unit size or tenure. We would suggest, that reference is also made within the policy text to seek to stabilise housing affordability, and to meet the needs of a growing and changing population. A further consideration could be the
recognition that new homes will be adaptable, and of a type, design and size, fit to meet future needs.
