4.1.23 Gladman refer to Paragraph 61 of the NPPF18 which states that; "Within this context, the size, type and tenure of housing needed for different groups in the community should be assessed and reflected in planning policies".

4.1.24 It is essential that any such housing policies are underpinned by relevant and up to date evidence which supports and justifies the policies concerned as required by Paragraph 31 of the NPPF18. The evidence produced by the Council’s should recognise that market signals are important in determining the mix of housing needed and Gladman support the inclusion of sufficient flexibility within any policies, avoiding instances where a prescriptive housing mix potentially compromises a sites viability.

4.1.25 All households should have access to different types of dwellings to meet their housing needs. When planning for an acceptable mix of dwellings types to meet people’s housing needs, the focus should ensure that appropriate sites are allocated to meet the needs of specifically identified groups of households such as families, older people and self / custom build.

4.1.26 The GCT JCSR should ensure that suitable sites are available for a wide range of types of development across a wide choice of appropriate locations rather than setting a specific housing mix on individual sites.

The JCS should keep up to date evidence to inform the provision of affordable housing so that an adequate amount can come forward in accordance with the revised definition in the NPPF that acknowledges the new definition of affordable housing which includes ‘starter homes’.

We reserve the right to submit formal responses on the approach the JCS is taking to planning for specific forms of housing once more detailed proposals have been issued for consultation as part of future plan-making stages.

No specific house types should be identified as additional numbers.

At Cheltenham, the likely dominance of retirement housing buyers should be acknowledged.
No specific provision should be made to facilitate investment-buying of housing either for second homes (or even for some renting out).
Housing in desirable Cheltenham will always inevitably be scarce and therefore less affordable.
Accept and acknowledge the reality that ‘numbers-chasing’ can never change that relative unaffordability.

The NPPF2 explains that housing needs for different groups should be assessed to justify any policies on the size, type and tenure of housing including a need for affordable housing at paragraphs 61 and 62. These housing policies should be underpinned by relevant and up-to-date evidence, which justifies the policies concerned (paragraph 31).

VSM and DIO supports the JCSR considering different types of housing. However, the Councils are reminded of the importance of market signals. Policies should recognise that the mix of house types, sizes and tenures for each site will depend on a number of factors including location, size and characteristics of the site and the viability of the scheme. As such, the JCSR should ensure flexibility across all sites and the need for developments to respond to evidenced local demand. It should also ensure that suitable sites are available for a range of types of development across a wide choice of appropriate locations rather than setting a specific housing mix on individual sites.

The JCS Review should ensure that suitable sites are available for a wide range of housing types, across a wide choice of appropriate locations, rather than setting a specific housing mix on individual sites.

In accordance with the NPPF paragraph 61, it is accepted that Local Authorities need to address the needs of the whole community in planning policy. As part of the JCS review, consideration should be given to student and elderly accommodation, where there is need/demand for these types of uses but also being flexible to the market demands which change over time.
