POLICY 20 - QUALITY HOUSING PROVISION

20.1 Proposals for new housing development must adhere to the following criteria:

  • Density - New housing development should be provided at a minimum density of 30 dwellings per hectare net.
  • Type – on sites of ten or more units the Council will seek to provide a mix of housing size and style so as to provide for local need and create choice in the housing market.
  • Quality – Layout and design should reflect the site surroundings, and provide a quality environment for its residents, whilst protecting the amenity of neighbouring properties. The choice of building materials should reflect those detailed in Policy 13.

20.2 The Borough Council will seek to retain quality in existing residential areas. Consequently development of residential garden ground for housing will only be acceptable on sites equal to or less than 0.2 ha in size. Such sites must also be regarded as infill plots. Development of garden land for housing will not be acceptable outside a settlement boundary.
