Affordable Housing

Para. 5.21 states

“It is considered that, subject to viability testing, a target of 40% affordable housing for all suitable sites is realistic and achievable in light of the evidence, and will go some way in meeting the identified affordable housing need.”

Tonbridge and Malling has concerns over including a target and percentages of affordable housing when this has yet to be subject to viability testing, which may demonstrate that such a figure is undeliverable.
