Policy LC2: Affordable Housing

Representation ID: 6099

Received: 06/04/2017

Respondent: Tetlow King Planning

Representation Summary:

Policy LC2: Affordable Housing is supported, however it may be beneficial for the policy to also consider different affordable housing tenure mixes where there are viability concerns; the delivery of social rented homes may be supported by a higher quantity of intermediate affordable homes, or rent to buy which does not require grant funding.

Policy LC3: Exception Sites for Affordable Housing

Representation ID: 6100

Received: 06/04/2017

Respondent: Tetlow King Planning

Representation Summary:

Point a) of Policy LC3: Exception Sites for Affordable Housing should be amended to remove reference to "that would not be met by a market housing proposal". Market housing proposals would not be acceptable in these areas as this would be contrary to Policy SS14. As the purpose of rural exception site schemes is to provide affordable housing in rural areas where development would otherwise be restricted, this element of the policy is unnecessary and confusing and should be removed.

The final paragraph of this policy should be removed and set out as a separate policy; it is not appropriate to include policy on specialist housing for the elderly as part of an affordable housing policy as this does not give due weight nor does it reflect the specialist nature of such proposals.

Affordable Housing

Representation ID: 6101

Received: 06/04/2017

Respondent: Tetlow King Planning

Representation Summary:

In addition to allowing market housing to cross-subsidise rural exception site schemes, the policy should also enable other affordable tenures to be included where this would support delivery of affordable housing to meet local needs.

Policy LC4: Type and Mix of Housing

Representation ID: 6103

Received: 06/04/2017

Respondent: Tetlow King Planning

Representation Summary:

Policy LC4: Type and Mix of Housing is appropriate, and supported. Though specialist housing for the elderly(including extra care)should be set out separately in another policy.

Suggestion that the Council acts now to adopt an innovative approach to meeting local housing needs by incorporating the new definitions of affordable housing, including rent to buy.

Would welcome any opportunity to meet with members of the planning policy and housing teams to discuss rent to buy.
