Object to HS5: Requirements need to be evidenced and viability tested

Full text:

Policy HS5:
The policy is objected to. This is because the imposition of an arbitrary and onerous 50% requirement in Item a) of the policy is inappropriate. The Council must be able to demonstrate a specific need for a 50% provision in its evidence-base before it seeks to impose this requirement on all major developments. Further the word 'major' is not defined and needs clarification - i.e. what constitutes a major site? In addition, the Council needs to demonstrate how it has taken the viability implications of this policy on developers into account, alongside other policies.

Support the proposed policy but consider the requirements should be stronger so that all dwellings meet the M4(2) standard and 10% of all dwellings meet the M4(3) standards.
