An approach to affordable housing to inform the East Midlands Regional Plan

This project reviewed alternative methodologies for determining the proportion of new dwellings that should be affordable in order to select a preferred approach for the East Midlands. Once this was agreed, the project produced affordable housing targets for the region and for the sub-regional housing markets separately.

The East Midlands Regional Assembly commissioned CCHPR to develop an approach to establishing the required level of affordable housing in the region taking account of the policies set out in PPG3, draft PPS3 and the objectives and constraints of the Regional Plan. The approach informed the Regional Plan, sub-regional spatial strategies and the Regional Housing Strategy. Having established an approach, the work involved formulating an affordable housing target for the region and for sub regional housing markets in the East Midlands, including achieving an appropriate mix of household types and meeting the need for affordable rural housing.
