Summary
Table 2 - Market Housing Mix & Bungalows
Comment

Table 2 'encourages' a 4bed+ percentage of 25% for market homes.

This is inconsistent with the evidence and declared aim of HDC in Chapter 6.

It is also a massive change from the Chilmark report.

Has the latest report been checked for accuracy?

The SHMA  notes at 10.51 Bungalows are often the first choice for older people seeking suitable accommodation in later life and there is generally a high demand for such accommodation when it becomes available. It is disappointing that there is no policy for this in the draft HDLP.

 

 

 

Proposed Change Reduce 4+bed percentage (market homes) to align with requirements and be consistent with evidence (check it please).

Have a policy to support bungalow provision for the elderly & infirm/disabled.
