Affordable Housing



Helping to improve Affordable Housing Delivery

The National Park Authority appreciates the importance of, and need for, affordable housing in the National Park. It also recognises that recent delivery rates have fallen substantially below what is required.

Against this background where affordable housing delivery has not reflected identified needs, work has been undertaken, with the help of key stakeholders, to provide guidance on the way in which the local planning process might be enhanced so that an increased supply of affordable housing can be achieved.

The Authority’s approach has been revised to provide:

  • a greater return for the developer with the type of affordable housing that can be built on site.
  • an update to date appraisal of how much affordable housing  can be delivered on sites and through contributions in the current economic climate.
  • A more streamlined application process.

Affordable Housing Contributions Map

Affordable housing contributions from both National Park and County Council planning applications are managed and monitored by the County Council's Planning Obligations Monitoring Officer.

The link below opens an interactive map, which aims to provide transparency on the collection and use of monetary affordable housing contributions.  The map represents each contribution as a 'spend area’ in terms of community council's coverage; is broken down into what has been spent and what has not; and provides details (where applicable) of how a contribution has been spent.  The map is collaboration between the National Park Authority and the County Council and details contributions from planning applications submitted to both planning authorities.  The map will be developed over time as new applications come in and contributions from previous applications have been spent.
