Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA) November 2015

Introduction

What is a Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (HELAA)? 1.1 The HELAA incorporates what was formerly known as a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment (SHLAA). The HELAA is a technical study of all potential housing, economic and retail sites within Wycombe District. It performs the following functions: -

It identifies potential sites for housing, employment and retail from a variety of different sources it gives an indication of the potential overall scale of land that may be available for development it looks at their suitability for housing, employment and retail use, with likely timescales for deliverability; It does not make policy decisions or allocate sites but informs plan making. 1.2 The requirement for a HELAA is set out in paragraph 159 of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and in the Department for Community and Local Government (DCLG) Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) under the section ‘Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment’, which provides detailed guidance on how to carry out a HELAA. 1.3 The HELAA presents a strategic picture of the availability and suitability of land for development, providing a key component of the evidence base to inform the preparation of the new Local Plan for a period of 2013 - 2033. It attempts to establish realistic assumptions about the number of homes, employment and retail floorspace that this land could yield and the timeframe within which this might come forward. 1.4 This HELAA report follows the published joint methodology set out in the ‘Central Buckinghamshire HELAA Methodology’1 which is in accordance with the NPPF requirements and follows guidance from the PPG. It is a jointly agreed methodology between Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern and Wycombe District Councils which make up the Housing Market Area and Functional Economic Market Area2. This follows the requirement set out in the PPG for a HELAA to be carried out for the housing and economic market area3. 1.5 Wycombe District Council is currently working on a new Local Plan for the District. An interim SHLAA was published in February 2014 which looked afresh at Wycombe’s housing land availability and formed part of the evidence for Local Plan Issues and Options consultation in early 2014. This report forms an update to the interim SHLAA, identifying the potential housing, economic and retail sites for the

new Local Plan (2013-33), with housing monitoring information based at 1 April 2015. 1.6 The HELAA also plays an important role in the plan monitoring process, providing evidence of the level and distribution of past development, contributing to the district’s rolling five year housing requirement. 1.7 The PPG ‘as amended’ introduces some subtle yet important changes when considering the potential supply of development land. The approach now includes the availability of economic development (not just housing as previously), inclusion 4 of C2 use class (including care homes), the treatment of planning permissions and the inclusion of windfall (set out in paragraph 48 of the NPPF), but the exclusion of residential garden land (without a planning permission). 1.8 It is important to note that whilst the HELAA must be grounded in reality (sites must be realistic and viable) nonetheless its key role is to identify the volume and geography of potential supply. It is important to note that it is not the purpose of the HELAA to allocate land for residential or economic development. That is to be carried out through the Local Plan process. The identification of a specific site in this assessment does not necessarily mean that the site will be allocated for housing or economic development or that planning permission will be granted. It is important to note that the inclusion of any dwelling or floor space potential number for a site does not in any way imply acceptability of that particular level of development. Any proposal would need to be considered as part of the formal planning application process.

This report is a draft report and we would welcome comments on the findings to date. In addition we would welcome any suggestions for sites that are not included in this report.

Stage 1 – Site Identification 2.2 Sites have been identified through sources identified in Table 1 of the Joint Methodology and paragraph 2.21 – 2.22 specifically for economic development sites. These are summarised as those sites within the planning process (under construction, unimplemented planning permission, prior notifications, planning applications approved subject to legal agreement, recent refused or withdrawn permission and those at preapplication inquiry stage); allocated sites; sites promoted through call for sites including from developers, landowners such as registered social landlords (e.g. Red Kite), Bucks County Council and Wycombe District Council; vacant and derelict sites; and sites known by Planning Officers. 2.3 Sites are grouped into different types, with those sites listed first where the deliverability is the most certain: -

Sites under construction with units which have not yet been completed Sites with planning permission but not yet implemented Sites with prior notification for office to residential (PAJ)7 Allocated sites in existing Local Plan documents Core Strategy Reserve sites which have been released for development Urban and rural brownfield sites (not employment) Employments site (urban and rural) Greenfield sites within a settlement Peripheral greenfield sites on the edge of settlements

2.4 Each site is then considered through a set of initial ‘stage 1’ criteria, which is set out in Table 2 of the Joint Methodology. This excludes sites where; -

-

site size is below the minimum size (5 or more dwellings (net) or 0.25ha for employment and retail); national environmental constraints (including flooding, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, Special Areas of Conservations, Special Protection Areas and Sites of Schedule Ancient Monuments) are present; the land is Green Belt (if not on previous developed land); there is ongoing economic development use; where sites are not within or adjoining a settlement.

2.5 A full list of sites which do not meet the criteria in Table 2 of the Joint Methodology are identified as part of Appendix 3. This resulted in approximately 170 sites being sifted out from the HELAA at this stage. 2.6 A separate Green Belt study is being carried out. Part 1 of the assessment is underway; this tests parcels of land within the Green Belt against the purposes of the Green Belt set out in paragraph 80 of the NPPF. Full details of Part 1 of Green Belt study can be viewed online8. Parcels not meeting the purposes of the Green Belt (as identified in Part 1) will be progressed to Part 2 of the Assessment for further analysis. Part 2 of the assessment will identify sites which may then to be 7

Please note the assessment does not take into account the recent changes made through the Housing Bill to make this change of use permanent. This will be updated in the review next summer (2016).

included in the HELAA for further consideration. Findings of the assessment are currently unknown. Sites within the Green Belt which are not on previously developed land are excluded as part of the Table 2 Criteria of the Joint Methodology. 2.7 Ongoing employment sites are those which are safeguarded from alternative uses and typically are in use. A recent Employment Land Review has been undertaken and the Council has since reviewed many of these sites and recommended where sites can be released for alternative uses from employment. Sites which are not recommended for release are excluded as part of the Table 2 criteria of the Joint Methodology.

Stage 2 – Site Assessment 2.8 Sites which pass Stage 1 (Table 2 criteria) have been taken forward through to stage 2 of the HELAA to consider their suitability, availability and achievability. This is assessed through a combination of desktop assessment, site visits and developer / landowner information. For each site which has been considered suitable the landowner or developer/agent has been contacted for information on availability and achievability of developing the site. Appendix 1 identifies the HELAA form used to obtain landowner and developer information. Existing studies 9 10 including the 2014 Employment Land Review and 2014 Retail Study are also used to inform the site assessment, such as information on viability. This information is then used to help inform whether a site is ‘deliverable (to be built within 5 years) or developable (to be built within 6 - 18 years). Sites which are not considered to be ‘suitable’, ‘available’ or ‘achievable’ are set out within Appendix 3. 2.9 There are a number of sites which were assessed where insufficient information was received for identifying whether the site was available and achievable. The majority of these sites are residential intensification sites where a planning application or pre-application enquiry has been made but not implemented. These types of sites are often difficult to assess. For the basis of the housing supply these sites have been excluded from the assessment at this stage and identified as ‘no information’ sites identified in Appendix 3. Future updates to the HELAA will review these sites and identify where new information has been made available. 2.10 Sites which are not ‘achievable’ are where there are constraints such as viability, or landownership issues, preventing development taking place. These may be sites with or without planning permission. These sites are listed in Appendix 3. Approximately 100 sites were taken out through stage 2 of the assessment.

Stage 3 – Windfall Assessment 2.11 Stage 3 of the HELAA methodology identifies where there is realistic evidence on windfall delivery where an allowance can be made. These are sites which are currently not identified but a consistent supply of these sites can be demonstrated11. A deliverable supply of small windfall sites (less than 5 dwellings) has been shown to become consistently available. Page 5 of the Joint 9

Methodology identifies windfall completions to be analyzed for the past ten years (see Appendix 11) in order for past trends to be considered. The graph in Appendix 11 identified average completions for the last ten years. The trend shows between 2005-10 average completions where higher than they have been for the last 5 years, this would be consistent with the economic boom and recession seen in more recent years. It is considered that the last 5 years of windfall completions are a realistic basis for projecting forward a future supply of small windfall sites. This is taking a cautious approach that windfall completions may not return to the higher trend in the boom period experience 5 to 10 years ago. As such the average completion from 2010-15 has been used to calculate an annual windfall allowance of 33 dwellings.

Stage 4 – Review of Assessment Broad locations 2.12 Stage 4 of the Joint Methodology identifies that if insufficient capacity is identified for housing and economic needs through individual sites, broad locations should be considered. Princes Risborough expansion area has been identified as a broad location. Individual sites brought forward on their own are in most cases not suitable, however a wider comprehensive development scheme could allow for a sustainable expansion for Princes Risborough. This work is currently being progressed through an Area Action Plan to help meet housing needs. 2.13 In July 2015 the Council published an emerging development scenario (see Figure 2 below) for consultation purposes identifying between 1,900 - 2,500 new homes to be provided at Princes Risborough. Work is ongoing to refine the total capacity, including further work on densities and whether the secondary school and sewage treatment works can be relocated. Taking the mid-point a total of 2,200 could be accommodated as part of the Princes Risborough expansion. Based on the information so far it is considered 1,000 dwellings will be completed in years 6 – 10 (2020 – 2025) and the remaining 1,200 dwellings in years 11 – 18 (2025 – 2033) of the plan period. This is based on a delivery rate of 200 dpa, assuming 3-4 developers involved in building out the site. The extent of the proposed development area is set out in the map below. An assessment of the sites which make up the expansion area is set out in Appendix 4.

3 Summary of Potential Supply 3.1 Tables 1 to 5 below set out a summary of the potential supply for housing, employment and retail that makes up the HELAA. These sites have been through Stage 1 of the assessment and met the criteria in the first sift. They were then considered for further assessment in Stage 2 and considered suitable with a reasonable prospect of being delivered with the Local Plan period up to 2033. All of the sites within 5 years are considered ‘deliverable’ and sites within 6 -18 years are 12 considered to be ‘developable’, in line with the NPPF definition .

Potential Housing Supply 3.2 Sites which make up the supply of housing are identified in Appendix 2 are summarised in the table below. This sets out housing completions for the first 2 years of the plan period, those sites which are under construction, sites with planning permission which have not started and other ‘deliverable’ or ‘developable’ sites.

3.3 The draft HEDNA sets out a housing requirement of 15,011 dwellings for the period of 2013 – 33 (751 dwellings per annum). As of 1 April 2015 there are 3,642 deliverable sites, equating to 77% of the total requirement or 3.8 years’ worth of supply. A five year supply cannot be currently be demonstrated in Wycombe District when assessed against the objectively assessed need.

Further Assessment for Housing Supply 3.5 There are a number of sites which are identified as ‘further assessment’ sites. These are sites which are mainly located within the AONB but not within the Green Belt, mainly at Stokenchurch and Lane End (see Appendix 5). Further assessment is required to identify the suitability of the sites including the impact development would have on the AONB and the overall capacity of such settlements to accommodate development without significant harm to the AONB, as well as other site and settlement specific reasons. A separate assessment will be undertaken which will then inform the conclusions drawn for the HELAA. 3.6 Further sites may also be identified through the Greenbelt Assessment as identified in paragraph 2.6. These sites will then be considered through the HELAA in an updated assessment which will take place in summer 2016.

Potential Employment Land Supply 3.7 Table 4 sets out the current supply of employment land. This adds further detail to what is identified in Chapter 9 of the HEDNA which identifies the employment supply and demand. For the purpose of this assessment employment sites are considered to be those in B use classes. Appendix 7 sets out sites which make up the potential employment land supply (deliverable and developable) for the plan period. Appendix 8 identifies a series of Local Plan options for employment and Appendix 9 identifies existing employment sites which have been recommend to be released for housing.

Further Assessment for Employment Supply 3.8 Other sources of employment supply may also come available from several Local Plan options which are currently being consider for further employment development and also the Core Strategy reserve sites which have now been released for development. 3.9 In early 2014 the Council consulted on a number of options for new employment allocations to meet requirements contained in the draft Economy Study. The sites and indicative capacities are set out in Appendix 8. The Council is undertaking further work on the suitability of these options including Green Belt assessment, transport modelling and overall requirements in the light of the draft HEDNA, as a result these figures are not final as these sites may not be allocated. 3.10 In terms of the reserve sites, all sites are considered to be available now and development briefs are currently being progressed alongside public consultation. Gomm Valley (SHW004) and Abbey Barn South (SHW0429) are both considered as potential sites where new economic development could take place. Further assessment is currently underway to identify the amount of employment potential and whether this would be achievable. The other reserve sites have been assessed through the HELAA and are not considered to be suitable for economic development. 3.11 Further information on the employment Local Plan options and reserve site will be made available in summer 2016 when the HELAA will be updated.

Potential Retail Supply 3.12 This section sets out the current supply of sites for retail development and should be read in conjunction with the latest evidence on retail needs as set out in

the Wycombe Town Centres and Retail Study (2014)15. Appendix 10 sets out the sites that are available for retail development both in terms of existing permitted sites and allocations in the Delivery and Site Allocations plan.

Stage 4 - Conclusions Housing 4.1 The total supply of housing in the HELAA shows there is a significant shortfall when compared to the requirement. A total of 15,011 houses for the plan period are required. So far the HELAA identifies a capacity of 9,083 as identified in Table 1. This represents a current shortfall of 5,928 houses. Further work is ongoing through the Green Belt Assessment and Settlement Capacity study for those settlements within the AONB but outside of the Green Belt, which may result in further housing supply being identified. 4.2 The PPG17 identifies that where housing needs cannot be met locally, local planning authorities will need to work with neighbourhood authorities to help take unmet needs. The findings of this work will feed through to ongoing discussions about potential unmet housing needs with other authorities in the Housing Market Area and beyond. Employment 4.3 Table 6 below sets out the Councils employment land supply assessment as of 1st April 2015, when measured against the emerging objectively assessed needs as set out in the Draft Housing and Economic Development Needs Assessment (HEDNA). The HEDNA identifies that there is a forecast increase in demand for B1a and B8 uses and a decline in demand for B1c and B2 uses. However the draft HEDNA does not account for recent decisions taken by the District Council to release in principle a number of employment sites for housing, these are included in Table 4 above. The loss of these sites results in a reduction in the amount of land available for employment use and has been included in the table below. 4.4 When assessed against committed gains and losses for employment floorspace there is a net requirement for B1c/B2 and B8 floorspace. When prior notifications for change of use from (B1a) office to (C3) residential use are factored in, this results in a net requirement B1a floorspace.

4.5 The net requirement for floorspace includes sites that currently have planning permission for new employment development which may not be delivered or may result in different amounts of floorspace being provided. A number of permissions are for outline schemes covering all B use classes where the final mix of uses is yet to be determined. There is also potential that there will be further losses of industrial land in addition to that identified in Table 4. 4.6 This has implications for the role that land currently in employment use has in meeting future housing needs as identified above. The findings of this work will feed through to ongoing discussions about potential unmet economic needs with other authorities in the Functional Economic Area and beyond. Retail 4.7 Table 8 below compares the forecast retail needs against the supply of retail sites, this shows that for comparison there is a projected shortfall in floorspace of approximately 12,000 sq.m This is partly because the stricter interpretation of the sequential test for retail in current case law which indicates that long-term site allocations can no longer be regarded as being available now. . Appendix 10 however identifies that there are a range of sites which are capable of meeting this shortfall. In relation to convenience retail there is a moderate oversupply against the forecast demand over the plan period, even though a substantial amount of the need is being met in the first five years of the plan period.

Take up of vacant units (assumptions)

5,400

NB this is built into the floorspace projections for retail set out below.

The most recent town centres and retail study found that there was a vacancy rate in High Wycombe town centre of 16.6%, and recommended that a target should be adopted to reduce this rate to 7%. It stated that this would represent 36 units of approximately 150m2 each, which could therefore accommodate about 5,400m2 of floorspace. This thus feeds into a reduction of the 2031 projection for A1 floorspace in High Wycombe from 27,800m2 gross to 22,400m2 gross, and is incorporated within the above figures.
