Evidence presented at Milton Keynes Public Inquiries

The Strategic Planning and Research Unit (SPRU) of DLP have presented evidence at two Public Inquiries in Milton Keynes for residential development on the five year housing land supply position.

Roland Bolton presented evidence on the inappropriateness of the Liverpool Method to calculate housing land supply as it was at variance with the National Planning Practice Guidance notes. His research highlighted that the application of a 10% lapse rate for just some of the sites in the current five year supply period was an insufficient response to the Council’s long established over optimistic forecasts for housing delivery. The appeals have yet to be determined.
