Overview - Housing number

The housing target proposed, of 12,426, is based on assumptions that have not been made public and includes flaws that have not been corrected in the modified SHMA (verified by professional analyst Neil MacDonald of NMSS who concluded that an annual housing figure of 400 per year would meet Guildford's overall need).

The phased approach (more homes built towards the end of the plan period) is appropriate in order to permit necessary infrastructure but open-ended targets where an unknown figure is held back until after the plan period is not a reduction but a postponement and does not allow for optimal planning or transparency.
