As detailed in our representations in response to the Additional Information Consultation undertaken in October 2019, we welcome the Council and Inspectors' adoption of a modified housing trajectory for the District, which reflects when Strategic Sites are identified to begin delivery.

The amended stepped trajectory continues to ensure the Council addresses its housing requirements over the Plan period whilst demonstrating a five -year supply of housing on adoption, on the basis of the expected delivery rates proposed through MM170 (Appendix B).

We strongly support this modification as being necessary for the Plan to be considered "sound", aligning the requirements with the necessary step change in trajectory with the delivery of Strategic Sites from 2021 onwards
