10.21 This seems to disregard the fact that there is not that much demand in the rural areas.

There is absolutely no reason for" making Rother a more attractive place for young people to live" Young people require attractions and types of employment that Rother will never be able to offer, so it is a pointless exercise to try.Pandering to the "affordable housing" gimmick as some sort of solution is a delusion.

All housing needs must be catered for in the CS including 'live-work' housing. We trust the document adequately reflects broader requirements of the community not just affordable housing.

It is acknowledged that residential mobile homes provide a valuable source of affordable housing, however these types of dwellings are also classed as 'highly vulnerable' in PPS25. Therefore unlike conventional housing residential mobile homes will not be permitted in Flood Zones 3a or 3b, regardless of the Sequential and Exception Test or Flood Zone 2 where the Sequential and Exception Tests cannot be demonstrated. Recommendation 9:
Paragraph 10.22 on page 90 should refer to the high vulnerability of residential mobile homes in areas at risk of flooding.

There needs to be consideration of the role of second homes in creating a housing shortage. In Winchelsea, just over 20% of houses are second homes.

While we acknowledge the characteristics of the borough, we would like to see the core strategy make a commitment to contributing to the regional density target of 40 dwellings per hectare (as set out in Policy H5 of the Proposed Changes to the South East Plan) and examine how higher densities might be achieved at the local level.

Re box 20: We are generally supportive of the proposed strategy for Affordable Housing, with the following comments:
While accepting the case for 50% affordable housing in rural centres, the split between intermediate housing and social rented housing should be applied flexibly in light of the existing housing mix in each centre.
We have concerns about raising the requirements for one or two bed properties to 40% in rural areas as it will be a constraint on encouraging home working.

We strongly support the policy in paragraph 10.22 on preventing replacement with permanent dwellings. Again, we would make the point that such sites must not be allowed to establish a development footprint in the countryside that can leveraged to provide housing. The test should really be that, when the current use ceases, it should be possible to return the site to its original state. In addition, given the scale of caravan and chalet developments, they typically intrude upon the landscape setting: greater screening around the edge and within these sites should be required. We note Paragraph 10.23, which states that "their form and appearance are incompatible with the character of rural areas, especially the countryside of the High Weald, and they constitute inappropriate, sporadic and unsustainable development."

10.20 surely the higher level of social rented housing would have a much worse impact on a small rural sites.
