The Type and Affordability of Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
is relevant to all types of residential development, providing detailed guidance to assist in implementing a number of Core Strategy policies. The SPD helps to provide a mix of good quality, sustainable housing development of the right size, type, tenure and affordability to meet the housing requirements of all sections of the community.
All new market housing developments are required to make a contribution towards the provision of affordable housing in accordance with Core Strategy Policy CS11. Planning applications will be subject to one of three rates shown in the 'housing zones with parish boundaries map' located as the last attachment below. The rates are as follows:
- Area A 20% affordable housing contribution
- Area B 15% affordable housing contribution
- Area C 10% affordable housing contribution
