Included are the following measures to protect and promote family housing in the city:
- Developments should seek to complement the character of the local area.
- There should be no net loss of family housing resulting from redeveloping a site. This is aimed a preventing a family house being replaced by tiny one bed room flats. If a family home is removed it needs to be replaced as part as part of the redevelopment.
- New developments should include at least 30% family housing.
