Info call on land for Ribble Valley housing
11:42am Friday 1st March 2013 in News
RIBBLE Valley Borough Council has called for new housing sites after a government inspector ordered it to update its register of land with development potential.
In January, Simon Berkeley said that much of the information in its core strategy, which estimates how many homes the Ribble Valley needs to build to meet demand between 2009 and 2029, was ‘out-of-date’.
This week the authority requested details of more potential sites to update its SHLAA: Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment, first published in 2009.
The document will be a key part of evidence for the Ribble Valley Core Strategy when it is resubmitted later this year.
Landowners and builders who have a potential development site not in the 2009 SHLAA are asked to submit details to Ribble Valley Borough Council's regeneration and housing team.
In his report, Mr Berkeley said: “The base of evidence underpinning the plan’s strategic approach to housing is not adequately up-to-date.”
