The Council's Urban Capacity Study highlighted that there were other methods of increasing numbers of housing rather than just allocating land within the Green Belt. In particular the Council could:

1.Increase development densities on other sites.
2.Reallocate surplus employment sites for residential use.
The Council's employment Land review identified 12 sites with planning permission (but not yet developed or completed) which should be critically reviewed by the Council due to the current oversupply of employment land.

The Urban Capacity Report (July 2017) was commissioned to show the Council's intention to maximise the use of land within settlements. Only Luton, Dunstable and Houghton Regis have been assessed due to the significant contribution they will make to meeting Central Bedfordshire's Housing Need.
4.11 Table 4.2 (below) sets out a 'best case' for delivery of housing with the application of Scenario 4 (the highest density to housing delivery) coupled with a 50% Potential Additional Capacity increase.

The Council has indicated higher densities that might be normal for the district and there is some support that might be given to this approach, but it is essential that each site is considered in more detail rather than a sweeping assessment on a unit per hectare basis. Some sites are included based on 50 dph, such as a site across the road, "The Bungalow". It is unlikely that this would be acceptable at Development Management and such an overestimation on such a scale, if applied to other sites identified would bring this source of sites to a significantly lowernumber.
