Local Authorities: Planning

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether a local authority is permitted to relocate a housing allocation published in its local plan or local development framework from one site to another. (201781)

The housing allocations in the Stroud district local plan, adopted on 10 November 2005, were saved for three years after this date by a direction issued by the Secretary of State. Following this date, the housing provision should be reviewed and updated to take account of the up to date strategic requirements of PPS3 and amended through the local development framework process by Stroud district council. This will include a review of all remaining housing allocations from the local plan.
