Affordable Housing Provision


Development proposals for new housing where there is a net gain of 11 or more units and/or where the floor space exceeds 1000m² should provide affordable housing in line with the Local Plan requirements.

The affordable housing stock should be made available as an integral part of the development, should be visually indistinguishable from the equivalent market housing on the site and should be provided as clusters of up to 4 dwellings dispersed throughout the development, subject to a registered provider being prepared to acquire and/or manage the dwellings where applicable.

If it is not possible to provide affordable housing on site, in exceptional circumstances it will be acceptable to provide funding in lieu of affordable housing if this leads to the provision of additional affordable housing in the Parish.
