Policy C4 

Affordable Housing Provision

Melton Borough Council will seek to manage the delivery of around 1300 new affordable homes between 2011 and 2036 in order to balance the housing stock and meet the community’s housing needs.

It will do this by applying a target for affordable homes within housing developments on all sites of 11 or more units and/or where the floor space exceeds 1000 m2 , having regard to market conditions, housing needs, housing mix (in regard to tenure, type and size), economic viability and other infrastructure requirements based on the following percentages for different value areas:

 

The Council will also manage the delivery of schemes through private registered providers and our own delivery programme of affordable housing over the whole plan period.
