This background paper brings together the key conclusions from the various pieces of evidence work and appraisals which relate to new development sites for housing.

Having balanced the key findings from each, and taking cumulative impacts including infrastructure constraints, and policy implications into account, it was presented to the 13 June 2016 meeting of the Council's Cabinet Housing and Planning Panel with recommendations  on which housing sites should be selected for development in the 2016 Draft Local Plan Proposed Submission Document. Because the background paper was written prior to the finalisation of the Draft Local Plan Proposed Submission, it should be noted that the Sustainability Appraisal conclusions were interim at that point.
