Amended PPS3 out – revised affordability definition.

Here and responses to consultation.

New definition of affordable housing

Affordable rented housing is:
Rented housing let by registered providers of social housing to households who are eligible
for social rented housing. Affordable Rent is not subject to the national rent regime but
is subject to other rent controls that require a rent of no more than 80 per cent of the local
market rent.

Should push out other forms of affordable housing and raise land prices considerably.

Affordability is a continuum, some affordable housing is more affordable than others, such a definition fails to account for that.

Why couldn’t they keep the cross references and references to ‘forthcoming’ PPSs up to date
