Strategic Development Requirements The County Council recognises that the Borough Council has identified a residual requirement of 12,200 dwellings to be delivered between 2016 and 2030. KCC notes the identification of Ashford as the Borough's principal settlement due to its relatively recent expansion, increasing role in the sub-regional economy of East Kent and its key strategic transport links. This combined with the limited development opportunities in the Borough's other existing urban ar

Background 5.1.1 The process of undertaking an OAN is clearly set out in the Framework principally in §14, §47, §152 and §159 and should be undertaken in a systematic and transparent way to ensure that the plan is based on a robust evidence base. 5.1.2 The starting point for this assessment requires local planning authorities to have a clear understanding of housing needs in their area. This involves the preparation of a Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) working with neighbouring

Long Term Vision for South Ashford 7.1 The previous sections have demonstrated how the land south of Ashford has the capacity over the draft Local Plan period to deliver a choice of high quality housing sites to meet the objectively assessed need of Ashford and address the shortfall in delivery expected at Chilmington towards the back end of the Local Plan housing trajectory. 7.2 Beyond this, it has also been demonstrated how land to the south of Ashford could be developed in the longer te

Strategic Housing Market Assessment – GL Hearn (SHMA) 6.1.1 The Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) presents an assessment of housing need in the area. As such, it does not represent a plan target and is undertaken independently from any supply side considerations. It does however, serve to inform the Local Plan as a first stage in setting the housing requirement. 6.1.2 GL Hearn produced a SHMA for Ashford in January 2014 which used earlier 2010 and 2011 based population projections

Strategic Housing and Economic Development Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) 6.2.1 GDL have reviewed the SHLELAA in the context of the sites which GDL are currently promoting (at Brabourne Less and Smarden) as well as in the context of the other rural settlements, in this regard GDL express doubt as to whether the SHELAA can be considered a robust up to date piece of evidence, which can be used to justify and underpin the policies within the Local Plan. The site specific representation

The Commissioners appointed Crest Nicholson (Crest) to undertake the development on the basis that Crest would also install the physical and social infrastructure for further development on the Commissioners land beyond Finberry. Careful planning and provision for further phases is an essential part of the overall delivery and this is reflected in the reserved matters applications submitted for all of the residential land parcels. Finberry is an award winning scheme, celebrated by the Royal Town

There appears to be a free-for-all approach to land use at the moment and there are many inappropriate planning applications that do not address local housing needs but simply provide high profit return for unscrupulous housing developers wishing to exploit the areas proximity with the International Station/fast train to London. This needs to be addressed.
