Welwyn and Hatfield Draft Local Plan Proposed Submission Document Consultation

Welwyn and Hatfield Borough Council consulted on their Draft Local Plan Proposed Submission Document from 30th August 2016 to 24th October 2016.

On behalf of a client, SPRU submitted representations to the consultation stage supported by an assessment which found the planned level of housing was not supported by the most up-to-date evidence and that the Full Objectively Assessed Housing Need was higher than that planned for in the submitted plan. SPRU also submitted a report which found that the Council could not demonstrate a five year land supply and a housing trajectory that failed to consider evidence regarding the rates of delivery on the larger sites which had resulted in an overly optimistic rate of delivery.
