(i) City Plan
5.1. Jim Deans put the following question:
“Clearly the City Plan Volume 2 is now not fit for the purpose, many of the builds listed have either been cancelled or put back many years, while new builds have been started or in planning. will this new committee undertake a complete review of the plan and come up with a genuine plan that shows Number of Properties needed matches number of properties to be built?”
5.2. The Chair provided the following reply:
“City Plan Part 2 is currently being prepared. There was consultation on the draft Plan last summer and the final version of the Plan is due to be brought back to this committee for approval in November this year.
In terms of housing sites in Part 2 - draft policies H1 and H2 identify housing site allocations to support the delivery the city’s housing delivery target of 13,200 new dwellings in the adopted City Plan Part 1.
The proposed housing site allocations have been identified through a robust study called the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA) which is updated each year. Identified sites with planning permission, and where development has commenced, will be removed from the list of proposed residential site allocations in the final version of the Part 2 Plan.
It is important to progress City Plan Part Two towards adoption to ensure the city has an up to date planning framework in place to ensure that the right type of development is being carried out in the right places”.
