Issue details

Arun Parish Housing Apportionment

The report seeks Committee agreement to update the Parish (indicative) Housing Apportionment - to meet the needs in Arun based on the Governments’ Standard Housing methodology. This is in order to ensure that paragraph 14 of the National Planning Policy Framework (20 December 2023) is addressed in that provided Neighbourhood Development Plans are up to date (adopted within 5 years of a planning decision) and meet their identified needs, then the presumption (paragraph 11d) does not apply because of the likely adverse impacts are likely to outweigh the benefits.

Paragraph 68 of the new NPPF requires ‘indicative’ figures’ for neighbourhood areas to be provided. It is essential that a Neighbourhood Plan makes provision for its identified housing requirement in order for it to be afforded weight under paragraph 14 of the NPPF.
