Decision due on Ribble Valley homes plan

First published in News

A DECISION on Ribble Valley Borough Council’s housing plan is expected in April.

A public consultation has recently concluded in Clitheroe into the core strategy, which will dictate how many houses can be built in the Ribble Valley.

The strategy was examined by a planning inspector at the council chambers from Tuesday, January 14, to Friday, January 24.

The council has said that 5,000 houses could be built in the borough over the next five years if the plans are signed off by the government.

The council’s previous core strategy was rejected by the government in 2012 following concerns over its evidence.

Planning minister Nick Boles pledged in September that the Ribble Valley can ‘take back control’ of the planning process in the borough if their housing plan is approved.

Is that a further 5,000 on top of what is already going through ?

That's what I thought, but I have been reliably informed by someone in the know, that any land or house given permission from 2008 up to now, is included in the final figure for the Core Strategy. so at present, we have just over 4000. The CS is to last until 2028 but we have the initial quota already.
Also, and many people don't realise this, the CS is reviewed every 5 years up until 2028 and they can tell us we need more houses! So for all those who think the housing battle is over - it isn't!

RVBC have identified enough sites to allow for an extra 15,000 new houses!
