Last Minuite Decision to Do Joint SHMA strands Another East Midlands Plan

He sits alone on a giant throne
Pretendin' he's the king
A little tyke who's rather like
A puppet on a string
And he throws an angry tantrum
if he cannot have his way
And then he calls for Mum while he's suckin' his thumb
You see, he doesn't want to play

The Ballad of Robin Hood

Charnwood Initial Issues

The inspector is asking serious qs about the DTC.  They relied on a 2008 SHMA initially.  No wonder thye inspector is asking questions.  The inspector asks if the unmet needs of the HMA been met.  The inspector asks why was the decision taken to submit the plan in advance of work on a joint SHMA.

The inspector is also asking for the basis of the housing target and how it compares with HH growth.

Charnwood defends such questions as 'normal', however it is not normal to ask 'what the heck is going on' as the inspector asks here.  That occurs when a plan is not submitted with sufficient information in the SA to support the chosen option - isually to cover a political fix not supported by evidence.
