Consultation Information

Consultation Information

This document was published for comments for an 6 week period from Thursday 21 March to Thursday 2 May 2013. The consultation is now closed.

The Purpose of the consultation

The Core Strategy was adopted in December 2010. Chapter 35: Diversity of Housing sets out the Strategic Objective (CO 6) Diversity of Housing and related Planning Policies (CH1 to CH4). These policies deliver a diversity of housing in the Borough which is an integral part of the Core Strategy’s central vision of Building on Success. It is central to stimulating regeneration in North Kensington, and vital to the residential quality of life.

In October 2012 the Council published, for consultation, a document setting out the main issues relevant to the provision of housing within the borough, and setting out a number of possible options to address these. This issues and options paper  has been used to inform the current “Draft Policy” paper.

The purpose of this Housing Draft Policy is to set out what the Council considers to be the appropriate policies to effectively address housing within the Borough, and to help achieve the central vision. We seek you views on whether this is, indeed, the correct approach.
