Social, Environmental and Infrastructure Implications
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

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

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.
