6.4 Core Policy 3 – Housing Mix, Type and Density 6.4.1 In respective of the indicative housing density that is set out, within Core Policy 3, we believe that a further element of flexibility should be built into the policy. Gladman support an approach which does not set a rigid density requirement, but rather seeks to encourage higher densities in certain locations, such as Newark. This will enable sites to be designed to a density which is appropriate and responses to any site specific featur

Core Policy 3 represents the housing mix that is preferable to the Council on new schemes. On new housing developments, family houses of 3 bedrooms or more has now been discounted as a housing need of the District . This is presumably to favour smaller units to help meet the demand. It is of our view that this is not a sound approach and does not meet the requirements of the NPPF para 50 which requires a 'wide choice' of homes.

William Davis Ltd fully supports the overarching objective of Core Policy 3, as it seeks to secure good quality housing design and maximise the efficient use of land by proposing average densities no lower than 30 dwellings per hectare, unless it can be justified taking into account individual site circumstances.

We OBJECT to the proposed amendments to Core Policy 3 as presently written, it proposes to remove reference to the provision of family housing of 3 bedrooms or more in the polcy. This is internally inconsistent with the amended text in paragraph 5.13 which now identifies that the Housing Needs, Market and Affordability Study 2014 says that 50% of housing should be 3 bedroom or more. As such the policy intends to only support the provision of some of the housing need identified.
