Ards and Down Area Plan 2015
Policy Framework: Windfall Sites
Windfall development is housing provision on undesignated sites and as such, can not be precisely anticipated. It can arise as a result, for example, of plot sub-division or property conversion and can normally make a significant contribution to the housing land supply over any Plan period. Accordingly, past trends have been used to estimate the potential level of windfall sites that might become available for development during the Plan period and this has been taken into account in the housing allocations designated for each settlement.
