Draft Local Plan July 2018 Providing for Housing Choices Housing in Rural Areas Policy 10 - Housing in rural areas

  • Comment ID: DLPP403
  • Status: Accepted
Chiddingstone Parish Council fully supports this policy and believe that an element of open market housing to facilitate a scheme of affordable housing is acceptable. The NPPF now includes this policy and this should be reflected in the SDC Local Plan. Affordable housing in rural areas is very important due to the high cost of housing both in terms of purchasing and rental, and local people who have lived in the local area for many years and those who are key workers in the area just cannot affo

Support the local need stipulation, preferably with a restriction on size of the 'market housing' element properties.

Leigh Parish Council supports this policy as landowners are not now putting forward sites on Green Belt land purely for affordable housing schemes because they now have higher expectations on development and what could be achieved. The NPPF now includes this policy and this should be reflected in the SDC Local Plan. Affordable housing in rural areas is very important due to the high cost of housing both in terms of purchasing and rental, and local people who have lived in the local area for many

Amended Policy 10 - Housing in rural areas Policy 10 policy deals with 'rural exception sites' and says '… on rare occasions proposals may include an element of market housing ...' This is too restrictive to facilitate the provision of additional affordable housing to meet local needs, and should be amended as follows: "However, proposals may justify an element of market housing to facilitate delivery." Policy 10 also requires that if an element of cross-subsidy is required, the market housin

The policy is considered to be in line with policy VC3 of the AONB Management Plan which seeks to increase and improve the supply of affordable housing in the AONB for those with proven local needs.

Dunton Green Parish Council supports this policy although some clarification of what the Local Plan considers to be rural should be included. Many residents living in parishes particularly around the Sevenoaks town area may not realise that they are, in fact, living in areas designated as 'urban' as far as SDC's planning department is concerned.

Policy 9 - Affordable Housing Your draft policy proposes to seek affordable housing or contributions on developments of up to 10 units. This contravenes earlier government guidance that neither affordable housing or tariff contributions should be sought on small sites of up to 10 units. I would also draw your attention to paragraph 63 of the NPPF issued in July 2018. The guidance referred to above has now been formalised as policy by paragraph 63. It follows that your affordable housing pol

English Rural Housing Association is rural specialist providing affordable rented and shared ownership homes in rural communities for local people in perpetuity. We support Policy 10 and welcome the inclusion of some market housing on rural exception sites to cross subsidise the affordable homes, where the financial viability of the scheme requires it. It is also important to incentivise Landowners to bring rural exception sites forward and so a degree of flexibility - particularly where local c
