RBC consultation on draft Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document

Primary interest
Housing

Reading Borough Council has published a draft Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for consultation – the deadline for responding is 5pm on Friday 13 November 2020.

The Affordable Housing SPD provides detailed guidance on how the Council will secure contributions towards affordable housing from new developments. It gives detail on meeting policies H3 (Affordable Housing) and H4 (Build to Rent Schemes) of the Reading Borough Local Plan, adopted in November 2019. It would replace an existing Affordable Housing SPD dating from 2013.

The SPD can be viewed here on the RBC website.
