Affordable Housing Viability Study (AHVS)

14/12/2010 - Affordable Housing Viability Study

RESOLVED: That the Viability Study and its (current) 25% brownfield and 35% Greenfield affordable housing targets, as set out in Table 1 in the report, be approved for development control purposes, including a lowering of the targets by a further 3.5% if a 25% developer profit can be justified, or a lower target by individual negotiation following a site-specific viability appraisal.


REASON:      So that the Affordable Housing Viability Study can be used as part of the Local Development Framework evidence base, avoiding delays to the production of the Core Strategy, and for Development Control purposes as a material consideration to assist in the delivery of affordable housing in York now.
