Housing Scale and Mix
(1) The scale and mix of dwellings, in terms of dwelling numbers, type, size and tenure provided through development proposals should reflect identified local housing needs, subject to consideration of:
(a) site character and context; and
(b) development viability.
Specialist Housing Accommodation
(2) Within development boundaries, or the principal built form of defined settlements without settlement boundaries, proposals for specialist housing accommodation will be supported where they:
(a) meet an identified local need;
(b) are proportionate in scale to the locality;
(c) are located so they are accessible to local facilities; and
(d) provide necessary ancillary facilities as part of the development, that complement locally available amenities and, where possible, be made available to the wider community.
