Summary
Supportive query re. possible explicit referencing of low-rise flats.
Comment

Council strong supports this policy, particularly for the identification of the need to significantly increase supply of smaller 1- and 2-bed units, suitable for single people, young families and the elderly.  Although the exact mode of delivery will be developer-led, we query whether it would be beneficial for the plan to note that it is often the case that the best way to deliver such units at constrained price-points is via well-designed low-rise blocks of flats.

Proposed Change Possible explicit referencing of low-rise flats as an acceptable element in housing mixes.
