PROPOSED SUBMISSION LOCAL PLAN 2006-2028 - Aug 12

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028

Existing Commitments

4.102 The distribution of growth reflects existing commitments at April 2011 as well as requirements for future growth as shown in Table 4: Proposed Settlement Hierarchy and Scale of Housing Growth. This results in a level of growth in excess of 15,950 and this has been explained in relation to the scale of overall housing growth in Policy SS5. When adding up settlement specific provision, the overall requirement of 15,950 houses for the District is met with a small over provision within the range of likely variability over time. The main significance of the commitments is in the level of future growth in the letter stages of the plan period. In Wincanton's case the relatively high existing commitments mean little scope for provision in other locations. Just over half the plan's housing requirement is in known commitments to 2011.
