Notes Regarding Output Indicators

5.7 Indicators 3 & 4 refer to % of total dwelling units proposed/permitted in planning applications for new build and converted residential accommodation being single bed flats or non-self contained. In order to ensure that the policy and guidance are not resulting in displacement of pressures to provide single bedroom/non-self contained accommodation, indicators 3 and 4 will also be applied to 'other monitoring areas' in the District which may be vulnerable to displacement pressures. Such areas are to be defined by relevant statistical analysis and will include a buffer area around the Renewal Area itself.

Flexibility

5.8 This DPD is being produced as it is considered that urgent policy intervention is necessary to address the issues of quality accommodation, useable amenity space and the other issues which cumulatively contribute to the deprivation of the area. However, this DPD is part of a number of other Council initiatives to improve the area, and there may be scope for the future production of an Area Action Plan, incorporating the original Renewal Area and extended Renewal Areas, at which point this DPD can be supplemented to ensure the Cliftonville area continues to improve to a level at which long term residents, and their families and friends, are attracted to the area to live, work and enjoy their leisure.
