9 Next steps for the LDF  The 5 Site allocations DPDs will be published in April  6 weeks follow for representations to be made  Examinations are scheduled to begin in September  Adoption is planned in spring 2011

10 Next steps for the LDF  The Site Allocations DPDs will  Propose much needed sites for homes, particularly affordable homes, and jobs  3000 houses and 40 hectares of employment land in towns and villages by 2026  With support infrastructure programmed and sites reserved where needed “The right sites in the right places for the right reasons”

11 Next steps for the LDF  Site selection is based on evidence  Availability of land (SHLAA)  Sustainability of sites (STA)  Ability to service sites with infrastructure (SID) Stakeholder panels deal with each of these  With an added design dimension through the Prince’s Foundation’s EbD workshops “Sites must be shown to be available, sustainable, serviceable and deliverable”

12 Next steps for the LDF  In December 2008 the Partnership set up an infrastructure delivery group  That group has prepared the infrastructure delivery programme to support the DPDs  Site related infrastructure – access, utilities, flood measures, local green space, etc  Community infrastructure – affordable homes, education, health, police, public realm, etc  Strategic infrastructure – new roads, schools, sports, public transport, flood schemes, etc

13 Next steps for partners  Sign off the Infrastructure Delivery Programme as key evidence showing that infrastructure will be in place to support the DPDs  Make representations to support the DPDs  Lead and/or proactively participate in delivery of needed developments
