Affordable Housing, 2008

Objective

The purpose of the SPD is to provide more detailed advice for applicants for planning permission for new housing development, and also for the information of the wider public, on how we will apply policy H04 from the Local Plan Review 2006.

Monitoring

The SPD will be monitored predominantly though the annual monitoring report (AMR), produced annually.

The key measure used for monitoring the Affordable Housing SPD in the AMR will be recording and analysing the number of affordable houses delivered per annum.

Future AMRs will review the potential for reporting on additional indicators.
