1. North Somerset Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Document Potential new policy areas Q41. Do you have any views on the review of affordable housing policies?

The existing policy of no affordable provision below 11 units assists small builder/developers and we support that initiative. If a new policy is introduced for Live-Work units and these are provided for young local people, at affordable rent/purchase price these should count as part of the affordable provision. The 35% minimum target contained in the JSP is a reasonable and is supported.

This is a strategic matter than is being set by the JSP and the Local Plan should take the lead from it. The Council’s definition of affordable housing should be updated to reflect the contents of the Revised NPPF (July 2018).

The plan needs to take a realistic view of what level of affordable housing is deliverable, given the failure of the existing Core Strategy policy. We note that the JSP proposes a target of 35% affordable housing to be delivered on sites of 5 dwellings or more. However this policy is untested at examination and carries very little weight both in terms of the target figure and its application to sites of 5-10 units.

Appears to be an acceptance that affordable housing target will not be met as a result of the viability process - this is disappointing.

Coln Residential contend that the NLP policy on affordable housing should be compliant with the revised NPPF and supported by an appropriate viability assessment.
