Housing Mix Update pdf icon PDF 798 KB

To receive an update from the Director of City Development in relation to the delivery of housing mix.


Members are asked to note that there have been significant changes in the planning landscape since the original Scrutiny Board inquiry, and as such many of the issues previously captured in regular updates to the Board will now be superseded by the Leeds Local Plan 2040.


One of the seven broad topic areas it is proposed the Leeds Local Plan 2040 will cover is housing – “ensuring the right type, size and tenure of new housing is developed to meet the needs of different people across Leeds.”


For that reason, members of the Scrutiny Board are asked to consider this update directly in conjunction with the next item on the agenda – Leeds Local Plan 2040.
