Rushcliffe Council Not Hitting Housing Targets

We all know enough houses are not being built and often the blame lands with builders. But now it seems some councils are not providing the land for building homes as they are required to by law.

The council hasn’t set aside enough pre-planned land for new houses, which means it’s easier for house builders to get planning permission.

To help meet the government’s ambition of building more houses, the council needs to be able to show that it has enough plots to meet house building targets for the next five years.

However Rushcliffe Borough Council currently has only earmarked enough land to meet its target for the next 3.1 years.

Because of this, if developers apply for permission to build on land which has not been allocated for housing – such as greenfield land – then the council must give more weight to the application.

Despite the shortage major developments are still in the pipeline, including a new 3,000 home site on land south of Clifton which has been approved, and hundreds more houses around Edwalton.

According to the council’s own internal analysis, the lack of suitable housing sites is one of the three biggest risks facing the authority.

The details were revealed in a routine risk assessment for the council, which analyses exposure to risk.

It says that the ‘Inability to demonstrate a five year supply of deliverable housing sites against the housing target leading to further development on unallocated sites’ is a level 12 risk.

This is the highest level of risk that the council has allocated, and only two other risks have been given the rating of 12.

The council hopes to fix the situation with Local Plan 2 – which sets out where the authority will develop housing, among other things.

Councillor Roger Upton is the portfolio holder for housing and planning, and represents the Radcliffe on Trent ward for the Conservatives.

He said: “Rushcliffe Borough Council needs to demonstrate there is sufficient land available to deliver 7,153 new homes over the next five years.

“There is currently potential to deliver 4,386 homes which is a 3.1 years land supply.

“Our planning policy team is working hard to allocate more land to close this gap through the development of Local Plan Part 2, considered at full council last week.

“This will now be considered by the Planning Inspector and we hope to finalise it later this year.

“Local Plan Part 2 identifies smaller sites for housing development which are hopefully easier for house builders to develop.

“The council is also working with developers to progress development where land is already allocated for new housing.”
