Burscough Parish Neighbourhood Plan

On 26 July 2019, the Council adopted the Burscough Parish Neighbourhood Plan.  This is now part of the Development Plan for West Lancashire and will be used in decision-making for planning applications in the Parish of Burscough.

Burscough housing need

As part of the Council's housing need research, the following  summaries have been produced covering all parish areas including Burscough.

The Burscough parish summary provides ‘gross’ rather than ‘net’ figures for housing need – that is to say  the

number of new affordable dwellings required in Burscough each year, but ignoring any supply of affordable houses becoming available.

The supply would come from re-lets of existing social rented housing or newly built affordable housing. We do not take supply figures into account at a parish level since supply figures are only available at a Borough level and cannot be reliably estimated for each parish, and they tend to fluctuate from year to year. It is better to use the gross needs figure and local judgement regarding the likely flow of affordable relets.

The Burscough summary provides a succinct background upon which the Burscough Parish Council can consider

whether and what level of new housing it wishes to see. This applies to both market and affordable

housing. Adopted Local Plan Policy DE3 (Affordable Housing Development) provides what are known

as ‘rural exceptions’ criteria. These say that there must be evidence of need in the parish and that the

housing should be made available to local people.
