S106 Affordable Housing Provision: What is Going On?

This project aimed to find out what was happening on the ground to S106 negotiations and affordable housing delivery in a context of considerable uncertainty in the national and regional regulatory framework.

This project was in two stages. The first, funded by the RICS, comprised a literature and policy review together with an email survey of local planning authorities to find out about their affordable housing policies and practice in the context of regulatory uncertainty – notably the possibility of a scaled back S106 for affordable housing alongside a new Planning gain Supplement to pay for infrastructure. The second phase, funded by the JRF, involved in-depth interviews with a sample of authorities, looking in more detail at individual sites.

The interim output to RICS was a short report on the findings from the local authority survey, while the final output to JRF incorporated the additional findings from the detailed case study work.

This project explored how Section 106 is working on the ground to deliver affordable housing against an uncertain policy background. The study found that local authority policy and practice vary across the country. Whilst increasing numbers of affordable units have been provided through S106, there is still room for improvement.
