Affordable Housing SPD


The South Worcestershire Councils adopted the South Worcestershire Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document on the 26th October 2016.

The Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document will help developers, land owners and others who hope to build affordable housing under policies outlined in the SWDP.

It supports the SWDP policies on new affordable housing and explains how these policies will be interpreted and implemented. It includes information on the amount, design, location and tenure of new affordable housing.

The publication of the revised NPPF in July 2018 has impacted upon the interpretation of the adopted Affordable Housing SPD, as detailed in the below document. Please note that the section and paragraph numbering used in this update is in accordance with the number in the original SPD.
