The Council must acknowledge that it operates within a much larger economic area than that of its own District and must accept that its belief that a lower housing provision would help meet its employment and economic objectives is unsound.

Full text:

It is wrong for the Council to purely measure its own objective of economic growth against those of its neighbouring authorities or those of the nation as a whole. Rother DC does not operate as an economic island. Its ambition to reduce net out-commuting with the implication being that a reduced housing provision would help achieve this objective is contrary to the NPPF. The NPPF sets out the need for Councils to meet their development needs within its SHMA. The Plan should be positively prepared and should include an acknowledgement that the district of Rother operates across larger economic areas than that of its own District. The suggestion that a lower level of housing provision might engineer some sort of control over reducing unemployment and increase labour force participation is ill informed and contrary to the Governments commitment to build a strong, competitive economy.
