Phase 2 Lady Dane - FCLT objection to planning application promoted by Crest Nicholson

​We object to the proposals on two counts: -

1          The development mix is unbalanced and weighted too heavily in favour of 4 bed market housing

2          Insufficient social rented affordable housing is proposed. 

You will see that as well as testing  the balance of the all tenure mix proposed for Lady Dane Phase 2 we have also undertaken a study looking at the six major schemes in Faversham approved under the current local plan.  The headline output from the study of the major site is that a significant oversupply of 4 bed homes has been approved. This is a problem because the disproportionate allocation denies the provision of smaller homes to meet the needs of Faversham residents. ( Faversham Housing Needs Survey attached). 

The Lady Dane Phase 2 proposal will compound this problem and the applicants must be encouraged to revise their submission with a more compliant balanced mix.
