The Government targets are not absolute.  Very disappointed in this "planning" process so far.  All we have are sites up for offer by developers with no interest in the local community and what it needs.  We also have seen no plans for infrastructure improvements which, if development is to go ahead, are sorely needed - roads are congested, schools are being closed, waiting times for a non urgent doctor's appointment range from 3-5 weeks.  Increased density of housing is poorly defined - I suspect it means little 3-4 bed boxes with not enough room, parking or garden space, rather than well thought out apartments and starter homes which I would suggest is what we need.
