Calderdale's plan for housing growth

Calderdale’s plan for housing growth has changed over the local plan period. 

The original idea was for most development to take place in Halifax area, however as you can see from the chart, this has now shifted to Brighouse.

Brighouse allocations

Under Calderdale Council’s draft Local Plan, nearly half Calderdale’s growth is focused on Brighouse.

Brighouse allocations are categorised as strategic extensions (garden suburbs) and other Brighouse allocations.

Calderdale's land value decline

Benchmark land value (BLV) is a critical component of the viability assessment.  The BLV provides the baseline against which the viability of a particular scheme/site is tested.

BLV explained

To ensure viability, the costs of any requirements likely to be applied to
development, such as requirements for affordable housing, standards, infrastructure contributions or other requirements should, when taking account of the  normal cost of development and mitigation, provide competitive returns to a willing land owner and willing developer to enable the development to be deliverable
