GDL consider the current policy for affordable housing reasonable, but would remind the Council that the policy must be one which is flexible to change, and able to respond to rapidly changing market circumstances. Affordable housing should not act as a barrier to the development of a site if there are genuine viability concerns regard the delivery of such a site. The Council should therefore keep an open mind to the need to consider site specific circumstances, on a case by case basis, whe

The Local Plan and Community Infrastructure Levy Viability Report, prepared by Three Dragons and published in June 2016, provides a broad assessment of the Court Lodge scheme as one of two strategic sites. It comments that "The Court Lodge is marginally viable with policy compliant starter homes and affordable housing, £11,720 s106/278 per dwelling and providing £2m of infrastructure". Figure 5-3 therein identifies the assumptions that have been employed – 20% starter homes, 10% Affordable Hous

It is further considered that the Local Plan is unsound in that Policy HOU1 seeks to impose the requirement to incorporate starter housing to any proposals whilst still achieving 40% affordable housing delivery overall. It is considered that this is unsustainable since the requirement to deliver starter homes will affect development viability overall. It is proposed that land at Church Road, High Halden should be included in the Local Plan (see attached Location and Indicative Layout Plan) as a

The attached document outlines our concerns in Part 1, Section 4 that our Parishioners have found it extremely difficult to comment on the Plan. Thus we consider that question 4 is flawed as we do not have professional legal or planning knowledge. Part l also looks at the policies which we consider are UNSOUND. Part two of the attached document places objections to two sites in Kingsnorth Parish, S3 Court Lodge (page 50) and S4 Land north of Steeds Lane and Magpie Hall Road (page 55) which we c

Policy HOU1 (Affordable Housing) of the Draft Plan requires the provision of affordable housing on all schemes promoting 10 dwellings or more (and on site of 0.5 hectares or more) with the provision being not less than the area specific requirements set out within the table contained within the policy. Paragraph: 031 Reference ID: 23b-­031-­20160519 of the Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) is clear in that: Contributions (for affordable housing) should not be sought from developments of 10-­unit

40% affordable housing in the 'rest of the Borough' is welcome

CSP objects to the content of Policy HOU1 because in the opening paragraph, the text refers to provision "being not less than the area specific requirements set out in the following table...." However, the penultimate paragraph of the same policy confirms that a degree of flexibility "could be applied in line with the Council's deferred contributions policy", should independently verified viability evidence support this flexibility. As a consequence, this policy is not effective, because there

As set out in the attached we disagree with the policy approach in relation to 'rest of borough' category. The approach is too onerous, not justified and the threshold for affordable housing is too low without appropriate evidential base. The proposed policy conflicts with Case Law as set out in the Court of Appeal Order dated 13th May 2016.

Page. 167. POLICY HOU1. The provision of affordable and starter homes in the rural areas are reasonable, and we strongly advocate priority for local residents in these categories.
