Affordable housing supplementary planning document (SPD)
The affordable housing supplementary planning document (SPD) was adopted by the Council on 27 February 2007.
The intention of the SPD is to elaborate on the affordable housing policy in the Cotswold District Council Local Plan 2001-2011 (Adopted, April 2006). The SPD aims to establish a clear set of guidance procedures as well as provide practical advice for all those involved in the provision of affordable housing.
In particular, it seeks to provide additional details on: the calculation of mix and type of affordable housing; funding arrangements; financial viability assessments; use and calculation of ‘in lieu provision’; location of exception sites; integration and tenure blind design; as well as template section 106 agreements.
