UNNECESSARILY HIGH HOUSING TARGETS

Councils across south Essex are making policy decisions that produce housing targets that are unnecessarily high. For example:- Basildon proposed a new homes target of 16,000 when natural growth would suggest just 8,900 homes are required;

  • Rochford’s target of around 3000 new homes is twice the natural growth needed;
  • Castle Point is proposing 4-5000 new homes when recent estimates show negative growth.
  • Other areas show similar disparities. There can be sound reasons for increasing housing targets beyond that required for ‘Natural Growth’, but the contrasts noted here are staggering.
