SUPPORT Partneriaeth Tai Gwynedd / Gwynedd Housing Partnership (Elfyn Owen)
We welcome this Policy that will assist in ensuring that suitable models are developed within areas, probably rural areas. We can provide information that shows that some schemes are more difficult than others to realize without assurance that there are units available to subsidise the scheme. Table 7.13 in the 'Housing and Population' Topic Paper on Rural Exception Sites shows the numbers of developments on exception sites, with clear comparisons to be seen in the numbers. The strong link here with the Local Market Housing policy is a means of ensuring that developments occur within areas where there is a need for affordable housing with an element of selling on the open market in order to ensure that schemes are viable. This will facilitate the development of Community Land Trusts within specific areas.
OBJECT Llywodraeth Cymru (Mr Mark Newey)
Policy TAI10 states that in exceptional circumstances open market housing may be included to make a proposal viable. However, sites that include a mix of market and affordable housing cannot be classed as 'exception sites' under national policy - TAN 2 explicitly states that such sites are not appropriate for market housing (para. 10.14).
OBJECT Mr Rob Booth
There should be no open market houses outside the development boundary.
SUPPORT Hwylusydd Tai Gwledig (Mr Arfon Hughes)
I welcome this policy that will be of assistance to ensure that a suitable model is developed within areas, more than likely rural areas. Providing affordable housing schemes is difficult to achieve without the assurance that market units are available to cross-subsidise a scheme.
There is a strong link here with the Local Market Housing Policy. It's a method of ensuring that developments occur within areas where there is a clear need for affordable housing with an element of selling on the open market in order to ensure that schemes are viable.
OBJECT Friends of Borth-y Gest (Tom Brooks)
Exception sites adjoining but outside development boundaries lead to unplanned development creep and ribbon development creation. This may be justifiable for 100% affordable housing sites where a need for such small developments exist but is not justifiable for any open market exceptions. As drafted this policy would go well beyond Planning Policy Wales guidance.
SUPPORT Grŵp Cynefin (Rhys Dafis)
Policy TAI10 is greatly welcomed. It will provide homes for those that local house prices on the open market are well out of their reach. A planning guideline will be required regarding the nature and source of the evidence of need that will have to be submitted to support a planning application.
OBJECT North Wales Wildlife Trust (Mr Chris Wynne)
This policy risks damaging sites or features of local biodiversity value or important features in wildlife/green corridors. Insert reference to the need to comply with other policies of the Plan especially those related to the protection of biodiversity.
