A question for your planning department.
My records show that your authority does not have an adopted Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) scheme.
In light of the national mandatory direction that whilst Affordable housing is residential development for CIL charging purposes, it is subject to 100% social housing relief.
In your authority area, what is the policy/practice for an application for a development of 100% affordable homes as regards s106 financial contributions?
For example, 100 homes with a mix of tenures all classified as affordable and submitted by a housing association.
If s106 contributions are triggered by the size and scale of a residential development proposal, the Council will seek to secure such contribution regardless of the tenure of the scheme.
