Welcome

Housing, Gypsies and Travellers and Travelling Showpeople

slide2
It is important to remember that this is only a Partial Review of selected elements of the RSS – not a Full Review.
  • It is not proposed to undertake a fundamental review of RSS.
  • We will not be reconsidering the overall strategy and vision that RSS seeks to achieve; these are agreed and will remain the backbone of RSS.
  • The overall strategy and those elements of the RSS not included in the Partial Review are not subject to revision and will continue to be in place as a statutory part of the development plan system.
topics covered by the review
Topics covered by the Review
  • 3 key priorities:
    • Housing (inc revision of district housing numbers, housing market areas, affordability)
    • Renewable energy
    • Waste
topics covered by the review4
Topics covered by the Review
  • Other issues:
    • Gypsies & Travellers pitch provision by District
    • Travelling Showpeople pitch provision by District
    • Review of Regional Car Parking standards
sea sa process
Combined approach covering:

Sustainability Appraisal

Strategic Environmental Assessment

Habitat Regulation Assessment

Health Impact Assessment

Equality Impact Assessment

Rural Proofing

Integrated into one process covering 5 stages

Stage A: The production of an SA Scoping Report

Stage B: Developing and refining options

Stage C: Preparation of the SA \ SEA Report

Stage D: Consultation on the Revision and SA \ SEA Report, led by GONW

Stage E: monitoring and responding to adverse effects

SEA / SA Process
engagement
Engagement
  • High level political engagement via NWRA Executive Board and its successor organisation from July 2008
  • Building upon best practice from previous reviews of RSS (also RES)
  • Primarily web based – though facility for those who cannot access IT to be involved via hard copy, dedicated freephone number etc
  • Supplemented by workshops during June 2008 for options stage
  • Working with CAG Consultants to deliver this
  • Specialist techniques being developed to work with Gypsy & Traveller and Travelling Showpeople communities
  • Use of other techniques to raise awareness
beyond rss towards a single regional strategy
Beyond RSS - Towards a Single Regional Strategy
  • Current Government Consultation on Sub-National Economic Development and Regeneration (SNR)
  • Proposal to develop a Single Regional Strategy to replace RSS and RES with a Single Regional Strategy (subject to primary legislation)
    • Assembly already working with NWDA colleagues on initial work to develop a Single Regional Strategy
    • Work on Partial Review will form an input into Single Regional Strategy and not be abortive
  • Proposed to give the Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) the responsibility for developing the Single Regional Strategy, working closely with local authorities and other partners. The statutory functions of Regional Assemblies with respect to the RSS would be transferred to the RDAs (subject to primary legislation)
    • Assembly already working with closely with NWDA colleagues on Partial Review of RSS
  • Until these proposals are implemented the RSS responsibilities will stay with the Assembly (and its post July 2008 successor body), which will continue with bringing forward the Partial Review of RSS.

Social, Environmental and Infrastructure Implications

  • Social Implications
  • Infrastructure implications
  • Environmental Impacts
evidence base one
Evidence Base - One
  • Regional Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) for the North West.
  • Provides a picture of each of the 27 housing market areas identified in the region.
  • Looks at a number of scenarios exploring the level of housing growth which may be needed across the region over the period 2007 to 2032, driven both by demographic and by economic factors.
  • The range of figures produced by the Regional Strategic Housing Market Assessment work is from around 24,659 to 30,329 average annual dwellings per annum.
evidence base two
Evidence Base - Two
  • The lower end of the range is close to the status quo position which continues the rate of at least 23,111 dwellings per annum
  • As a region we are required to test the advice provided to the Government by the National Housing and Planning Advice Unit.
  • The higher end of the range set out in the Regional Strategic Housing Market Assessment work (30,329 dwellings per annum (average)) falls within the range that we anticipate will be covered by the NHPAU’s advice (28,000 – 32,000)
what has been decided
Set out by Housing Market Areas and Local Planning Authority areas in the North West

Give the overall level of housing provision for the period 2007 to 2032.

Give an affordable housing target for the region and each Housing Market Area

Set a target for the proportion of housing development that will be on previously-developed land (PDL).

The target for the region will continue to be at least 70% on previously-developed land. set out how we will achieve a good mix of housing

Set out the region’s housing density policies including any target.

Identify broad strategic locations for new housing developments and criteria test the advice provided to the Government by the National Housing and Planning Advice Unit

We assume that all new housing provision will be built to Code for Sustainable Homes standards

  • Housing Market Renewal Initiative Pathfinder Areas
  • West Cumbria and Furness
  • Lancashire Coastal Towns of Blackpool / Fleetwood and Morecambe

issues to be considered
Issues to be considered
  • Integral part of the wider housing agenda
  • What is the difference between a site and a pitch? (or a yard)
  • Results of a series of Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessments (GTAA’s)
  • Transit sites
somewhere to live
Somewhere to live
  • How legal sites offer a better physical environment for Gypsies & Travellers (eg water, power etc) and access to services such as schools, doctors etc
  • Benefits of closer integration with settled community, reducing isolation and marginalisation for Gypsies & Travellers
  • Benefits of access to services such as schools, doctors resulting in improvement of health, life expectancy for Gypsies & Travellers
  • Reduction in illegal camping improves the quality of life of every community
  • Resource and costs savings for local authorities/ police in enforcing and cleaning up illegal encampments.
what has been decided30
What has been decided
  • The RSS will specify pitch numbers required (but not their location) for each local planning authority (LPA), in light of the GTAA’s conducted and a strategic view of need, supply and demand across the region is taken.
  • In order to adapt to current working and living patterns of Gypsies & Travellers, the RSS policy will seek to promote the establishment of a mix of permanent and transit provision.
option one
Option One

Use the results from the studies to distribute new provision based on the existing identified ‘need where it arises’ basis.

option two
Option Two

Use the results from the studies to distribute new provision based on the existing identified ‘need where it arises’ basis and then modify the figures (upwards or downwards as appropriate) to ensure a minimum level of pitch provision in every district.

option three
Option Three

Working with sub-regional partnerships and the Gypsy & Traveller Community / the Showmen’s Guild agree a more balanced share of meeting need across districts, reflecting a wider range of factors other than solely the ‘need where it arises’ basis.
