Proposing to pause delivery on the Local Plan

We are proposing to pause the delivery of the local plan to allow for further analysis to be completed before it is taken to Cabinet for approval.

Last week the scrutiny committee discussed some further points around the planned development of the Springfield Park access road.

Traffic modelling work will be carried out over the summer months to explore access options to the potential Skerningham development.

Heather Scott Leader of the Council said: “This is absolutely the right thing to do given the points raised by the public and at our place scrutiny committee.  It’s important we listen to feedback, taking into account all views and options before committing to a local plan for Darlington.”

Middleton St George Neighbourhood Area Consultation

The Regulation 6 Consultation on the Middleton St George Neighbourhood Area has started today and will run until 5pm on Friday 29 March 2019.

In January 2019, Middleton St George Parish Council applied to Darlington Borough Council for a new Neighbourhood Area to reflect the changes in the parish boundary and to pursue the preparation of a Neighbourhood Development Plan. The boundary changes came about via a Community Governance Review in 2016. The Parish Council are proposing a Neighbourhood Area of the new parish area and excluding land at Durham Tees Valley Airport. Even though this land at the airport falls within the parish boundary it is considered inappropriate for Durham Tees Valley Airport to be included in the Neighbourhood Area due to its strategic importance. 

Further information can be seen on the Neighbourhood Planning page.

Darlington's Five Year Housing Land Supply Position Report

The Darlington Five Year Housing Land Supply Position report sets out the five year housing land supply assessment, for the period 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2023, when measured against a housing requirement based on an up to date, objectively assessed need (OAN). Paragraph 73 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) outlines that,

 “Local planning authorities should identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide a minimum of five years’ worth of housing against their housing requirement set out in adopted strategic policies, or against their local housing need where the strategic policies are more than five years old. The supply of specific deliverable sites should in addition include a buffer (moved forward from later in the plan period) of: 

  1. 5% to ensure choice and competition in the market for land; or
  2. 10% where the local planning authority wishes to demonstrate a five year supply of deliverable sites through an annual position statement or recently adopted plan, to account for any fluctuations in the market during that year; or
  3. 20% where there has been significant under delivery of housing over the previous three years, to improve the prospect of achieving the planned supply.”
