The council will require that the type and mix of housing proposed on a specific site redress any imbalance in the existing local housing stock, meet the needs of local residents, and in Weston-super-Mare support employment-led regeneration (Policies WSM19 and 20).

Not sound

Not justified

Not consistent with national policy

 

Comments:

It does not necessarily follow that seeking to achieve some equilibrium within the existing local housing stock in terms of the mix of housing types is synonymous with meeting the needs (market and affordable) of local residents or indeed for which there is a market over the period to 2026.

Suggested change:

The council will require that the type and mix of housing proposed on a specific site has regard to redress any imbalance in the existing local housing stock, and meet the needs (market and affordable) of local residents, and in Weston-super-Mare support employment-led regeneration (Policies WSM19 and 20).
