Affordable housing supplementary planning document

Supplementary planning document

Our affordable housing supplementary planning document (SPD) sets out the process and mechanisms for providing affordable housing in Fareham. It sets out further detail on the saved Fareham Borough local plan review policy H10: affordable housing for developers, house builders and the public.

Adopted SPD

The affordable housing SPD PDF (305 KB) was adopted (adoption statement PDF (16 KB)) in December 2005 and became effective on 1January 2006. On 1 April 2007 the lower site size threshold of 15 dwellings for affordable housing requirements came into effect. Targets for the proportion and tenure of affordable housing on sites of 15-24 homes are set out in appendix 3.

Affordable housing SPD viability study

The viability study considers the impact of affordable housing targets and site size thresholds on the viability of 12 sample housing sites representative of development sites in the Borough.

Affordable housing supplementary planning guidance sustainability appraisal

The draft sustainability appraisal (SA) was prepared in line with Government guidance.  It considers identified environmental, social and economic objectives in other relevant plans and programmes and provides baseline information for affordable housing in the Borough. It assesses the likely effects of the affordable housing SPD. The draft sustainability appraisal and draft SPD were published for consultation in July and August 2005.

Final sustainability appraisal report

The draft sustainability appraisal was published for consultation together with the draft SPD in July and August 2005. The final sustainability appraisal was approved in December 2005. You can see the sustainability appraisal report PDF (242 KB).
