  • increasing residential density around commuter hubs, to make more efficient use of land in suitable locations
  • supporting sustainable new settlements, development on brownfield land and small sites, and delivery of housing allocated in plans
  • supporting delivery of starter homes

The consultation closes on 25 January 2016 and is available at the following link:
