Throughout the Neighbourhood Plan Area residential development should comply with relevant policies for residential development in City Plan Part 1, including Policies CP14, CP19 and CP20. A mix of rented accommodation, both social and private, and accommodation for owner occupation will be sought across the DA6 area. Bearing in mind the large land holdings in the DA6 area developers will also be expected to provide a mix of dwelling sizes that contribute towards meeting city-wide need.


Access to open space is nowhere more important than in high density developments. This is essential for the health of occupants and the overall attraction of the area to future occupants. The approved Hove Gardens scheme for 1-3 Ellen Street demonstrates how a high-density complex of mixed use could still provide access to small gardens and green space to residents far above street level.
