Core Strategy Consultation on Strategy Directions 2008

Representation ID: 19150

Received: 26/01/2009

Respondent: Northiam Parish Council

Agent: Northiam Parish Council

Representation:

The strategy documents, presumably because it is some months since their preparation, make no reference to the current economic climate particularly regarding the housing and employment markets. Whilst appreciating that the strategy is geared to delivering the SEPlan objectives it should be recognised in the final document that the deliverability of the LDF will be affected by these markets.
The recent approval of the Bexhill-Hastings link road will enable RDC to firm-up on the number of dwellings planned for the Bexhill area. This will affect the shortfall to be made up by the rural villages.
