The LPAs will plan, monitor and manage the delivery of housing from 2014 to 2034 in accordance with the apportionment between Policy Areas, the spatial strategy and the site allocations set out in this plan. Housing provision will be made for at least 26,700 dwellings (net) in the Plan Area during the plan period 2014 to 2034, comprising the Policy Area totals and the related market housing and affordable housing provision as follows:

  1. Within the Plymouth Policy Area -  at least 19,000 new homes, of which 4,550 should be affordable.
  2. Within the Thriving Towns and Villages Policy Area - at least 7,700 new homes of which 2,050 should be affordable.

The Policy Area housing requirements are separate and non-transferable.  Only housing proposals within each Policy Area will be considered to contribute to meeting the housing requirement for that Policy Area.  Any shortfall in the supply of housing sites in a Policy Area must be made up within that Policy Area, and cannot be remedied in the other Policy Area.
