South Norfolk Village Clusters Housing Allocations Plan (Reg. 19 Pre-submission Draft)

Representation ID: 2803

Received: 06/03/2023

Respondent: Bunwell Parish Council

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

We currently have two 2015 Site Specific Allocations in Bunwell with eleven 4/5 bedroom detached houses and only four 3 bedroom detached houses. Due to the high value of these properties, they are being purchased by retired couples and WFH professionals with no demands being placed upon developers for more competitively priced 2/3 bedroom houses. If National Framework targets are to be achieved, local planners must demand this of developers, in addition to Affordable. Also allow increased numbers of windful housing numbers where needed.

Change suggested by respondent:

We are not convinced the required range of housing required in Bunwell will be met. Todate dwellings have been built to maximise developer profit opportunities rather than satisfy the specific needs of the village. It should be stated that the range of housing must meet the requirements of the village and local authority planners.
