Introductory section We welcome the consultation, but we are surprised by two things in the introductory section. First, the omission of any reference to the Growth Arc is odd in the extreme. This is odd as Central Government's support for a Joint Statutory Spatial Plan and the choice of the end date for the Plan in 2050 is determined by the commitment of national and local government for the ideas behind the Arc.

Housing need We note Topic Paper 4 and the section titled 'Delivering enough housing to meet need'.
