The Plan will help to implement a range of initiatives in a 'Plan for Homes' which provides a comprehensive delivery framework to increase the supply and quality of new housing in the city to meet the city's growth aspirations.
The city will implement a range of initiatives in a 'Plan for Homes' to ensure that a proactive approach is taken to driving and accelerating the delivery of the new homes needed to meet the city's growth aspirations.
Planning powers will be used to ensure that sufficient sites are identified to enable this growth to happen and to ensure that the right mix and balance of housing is provided in accordance with the principle of sustainable linked neighbourhoods.
The Plan for Homes represents a radical approach to the housing challenges facing the city and provides a comprehensive delivery framework to increase the supply and quality of new housing in the city. Launched in November 2013 and refreshed in March 2016, it provides for leadership, engagement and partnership working through proactive housing enabling, positive planning and development.
The Plan for Homes sets out an £80 million commitment to housing investment to support the overall delivery of 5,000 new homes over five years, contributing to the prosperity and growth of the city and meeting a range of identified housing needs.
The Joint Local Plan identifies how planning powers will be used to help meet Plymouth's housing needs.
