Affordable Housing SPD

An Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) has been produced.  It was adopted by the Council on 12th March 2008 following a public consultation held between 19th October 2007 and 23rd November 2007.


This document now forms part of the Local Development Framework (LDF) for the area.  The LDF forms the basis for decision on land use planning affecting the Borough.


The Affordable Housing SPD is available on this page.


The Council has published an updated Draft Affordable Housing SPD for six weeks public consultation from Friday 30 August 2019 and concluding at 12 noon on Friday 11 October 2019.  Once adopted, this will supersede the current Affordable Housing SPD 2008.

The Draft Affordable Housing SPD is accompanied by a separate supporting document, a draft Affordable Housing Advice Note, which is also being published for public consultation in parallel.  This does not form part of the draft SPD. 

The draft Affordable Housing SPD and accompanying supporting draft Affordable Housing Advice Note are available here
