UDP - No to higher density housing07 March 2006

The borough’s proposed land-use plan, the Unitary Development Plan (UDP), took a step nearer towards being ‘adopted’ following agreement at last nights Executive. The decision, taken as a matter of principle, not to accept proposed changes to an increase in the density of housing and the level of provision of affordable housing planned for the borough might mean that the Government ‘directs’, under pressure from the Mayor of London, changes to the plan at a later stage.

“We are not prepared to see local wishes being undermined by Government demands for ever more housing. Our policies have been written following extensive consultation with local residents and interested parties within the borough. But the Government and the London Mayor’s agenda is to increase housing densities and affordable housing provision irrespective of local opinion and the impact on the environment” said Leader of the Council, Councillor Stephen Carr.

The Executive did reluctantly agree to changes that would mean that housing sites exceeding 10 units will need to incorporate ‘affordable housing’ either key worker or social rented accommodation. However, the percentage of units within a development that are required to be affordable will remain at 35% under the Executive’s proposals. Future developments would also be required to have a lower housing density than is set in the London Plan.

The decision will be considered at full Council in March when the Council is expected to indicate its intention to adopt the Plan, subject to any government direction.
