Therese Coffey MP – activity in House of Commons

This link gives an up to date account of the subjects raised by our MP in the House. The only one directly relevant to NANT is a question on Option 1 Housing figures:-

Therese Coffey (Suffolk Coastal, Conservative). To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what figures (a) Suffolk Coastal District Council and (b) Waveney District Council submitted to his Department for the formulation of option 1 of the East of England housing strategy.

Bob Neill (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Communities and Local Government; Bromley and Chislehurst, Conservative). The equivalent to ‘option 1′ is the draft East of England Plan Review, published in January 2010, which suggests targets of 290 dwellings a year for Waveney and 440 dwellings a year for Suffolk Coastal, excluding the Ipswich Policy Area.

I would stress that local planning authorities are best placed to determine how to meet their ambitions for housing. They may retain the housing targets set out in the soon to be revoked Regional Strategies or they may decide to review these.
