The Isle of Wight Council adopted the Island Plan Core Strategy in March 2012. It consists of nine strategic policies and 22 more detailed development management policies. Policy SP2 (Housing) states that the plan provides for 8,320 dwellings over the period 2011-2027 (which is an average of 520 per year).
The review was undertaken to establish the council’s objectively assessed requirements in relation to housing, and to address concerns that the adopted distribution could not realistically be delivered and did not address a number of local and Island-wide issues.
