Cambridge Centre for Housing & Planning Research


This guide identifies the main components of an affordable housing evidence base and shows how this can be used to inform policies set out in a local development framework.

 It gives advice on how policies can be taken forward into implementation and how progress towards their implementation can be monitored and policies reviewed if needed. It also provides examples of policies in the South East which have been found to be sound. 

The guide has been produced with local authority officers in mind – especially planning and housing officers – and for local councillors with a special interest in affordable housing. The guide may also be useful to the wider development industry and for others interested in providing more affordable housing in the South East.
