Policy HIM18 Meeting Local Needs - Housing Mix

Our client is supportive of policy HIM18 and would be willing to discuss with Parish Council, at an early stage, a housing mix for proposed site which reflects local needs of existing community whilst responding adequately to challenges and opportunities of different components of community. This could include a mix of dwellings to respond to an ageing population and different types of affordable housing. Our client is willing to discuss different types of affordable housing with the Council on this site and an alternative site.

We acknowledge that the Parish Council has included a need for self-build opportunities. Our client could provide this type of housing and other specialist housing on land at 49 Cambridge Road - plan enclosed.
