Draft Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Closes 1 Aug 2022

Opened 17 Jun 2022


The draft Affordable Housing SPD provides further detailed guidance to support the adopted Local Plan policies with regard to affordable housing and how the council will assess viability within the planning process. This update to the existing SPD (2014) is to reflect new or updated requirements in the Local Plan and also guidance published by National Government, the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).

Alongside the SPD are some explanatory notes to answer common questions, about the context of the SPD and highlighting some of the other work that is happening to prioritise the delivery of affordable housing.

There may be a developer roundtable to enable discussions during the consultation period if there is sufficient interest, if you would like to attend if this goes ahead, or for any other direct queries, please contact:  Joe.Roberts@richmondandwandsworth.gov.uk
