Interim Housing Target agreed for St Albans District: 18 January 2013

Post date: Jan 24, 2013 8:31:20 PM

St Albans City and District Council’s Cabinet has agreed an interim housing target of 360 homes per year to fill a gap in guidance on local development.

The revocation of the East of England Plan on 3 January left the District without an adopted local plan specifying appropriate levels of housing development. The revoked document included a house building target for the District of 360 homes per year from 2001 to 2021.

A provisional housing target of 250 homes per year was set out in the draft Strategic Local Plan (SLP). However, a decision by full Council on 28 November led to the withdrawal of the SLP for further work to be undertaken.
