Consultation

  • WCS7 Effective provision of Infrastructure

  • The release of land for development will depend upon there being sufficient capacity in the existing local infrastructure to meet the requirements generated by the proposed development. Where development would create the need to provide additional or improved community facilities, services and infrastructure to mitigate its impact, a programme of delivery must be agreed with the relevant infrastructure providers which will ensure that these improvements are provided at the time they are needed. These may involve coordinating contributions from the development with other investment streams. This approach will ensure that the necessary improvements can be completed in a timely manner to support growth.

  • Arrangements for the provision or improvement of infrastructure to the required standard will be secured by planning agreement/ obligation, or by condition attached to the planning consent or by any other appropriate mechanism.

  • The adequacy of infrastructure provision in Wealden will be the subject of regular review with infrastructure providers as part of the ongoing work on the Infrastructure Delivery Plan. This will include health, transport, utility services, and education providers and will be reported as part of the LDF monitoring arrangements in the Annual Monitoring Report.


Consultation

  • WCS 9 Rural exception affordable housing

  • In exceptional circumstances, planning permission may be granted for small scale affordable residential development in rural areas outside development boundaries in order to meet an identified local housing need among those people unable to compete in the normal housing market.

  • Suitable sites will be located within or be well-related to a settlement which either provides reasonable access to local services and facilities, or has good accessibility to larger settlements nearby which provide a range of services and facilities. The scale of the proposed affordable housing development should be appropriate in relation to the size of the settlement andsites should not be isolated or intrusive within the landscape. Sites developed under this policy will be subject to controls on the occupancy of the housing to ensure it continues to provide affordable homes which address local housing needs in perpetuity. The affordable homes will be managed by an approved Registered Provider.
