Local Plan Viability Assessment

Burnley Borough Council commissioned HDH Planning and Development to undertake a Viability Assessment of the emerging Burnley Local Plan.

The study tests the Plan policies and sites as required by national policy set out in the NPPF which states that:

“In order to be appropriate, the cumulative impact of these standards and policies should not put implementation of the plan at serious risk, and should facilitate development throughout the economic cycle.” and “the sites and the scale of development identified in the plan should not be subject to such a scale of obligations and policy burdens that their ability to be developed viably is threatened”.
