Affordable housing requirements and parking guidance
Affordable housing provision requirements
If the proposal is for no more than 10 dwellings and the total combined floor area does not exceed 1,000sqm, then no affordable housing is required. Otherwise the requirement is as follows:
|Location||Affordable Housing provision requirement|
|Forest Heath sites (in primary and secondary villages only) of between 5-9 dwellings or sites of between 0.1ha – 0.33ha||20% provision|
|Forest Heath sites of 10 dwellings and above or sites over 0.33ha||30% provision|
|St Edmundsbury sites of between 5-9 dwellings or sites of between 0.17ha and 0.3ha||20% provision|
|St Edmundsbury sites of 10 dwellings and above or sites over 0.3ha||30% provision|
Further information can be found on the S106 and CIL page.
The 'Suffolk Guidance for Parking' technical guidance document replaced the Suffolk Advisory Parking Standards (2002); following public consultation in November 2014. In 2015 the document was updated to reflect new Government guidance. Further information regarding parking guidance can be found on the Suffolk County Council website.
