Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document

The Council’s Cabinet adopted a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for Affordable Housing on 14th January 2009. This is required to address the affordability issue and to provide guidance on the delivery of affordable housing in the borough.

The SPD takes into consideration national planning policy, regional policy and policy set out in the Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent Core Spatial Strategy. It develops the results of housing needs research that has been carried out on behalf of the North Staffordshire housing authorities and will enable the Council to be more precise about the requirements for affordable housing.

The SPD sets out a range of approaches, standards and mechanisms to secure affordable housing. This will ensure local needs are met, and sustainable communities and a balanced housing market are created.
