Affordable Housing Commuted Sum Process and Procedure

25/06/2019 - Affordable Housing Commuted Sum Process and Procedure

Members considered a recommendation from the Affordable Housing Working Group in relation to commuted sums.  It was noted that extensive consultation had taken place with the housing associations, but that Authority members had expressed some concern about losing a degree of control on housing allocation but that delivery could be achieved in accordance with the Supplementary Planning Guidance.  The Working Group would continue to monitor processes through the Local Development Plan.


RESOLVED: That Members agree to principle of transferring monies collected by the NPA for the provision of Affordable Housing to the constituent Housing Authorities for allocation and spend in accordance with the Service Level Agreement as set out in Enclosure 1.
