About Affordable Housing Statements

Have you been asked to provide an Affordable Housing Statement with your planning application? These reports are requested by a Local Planning Authority to set out the applicant’s view on the policy compliant degree of affordable housing which will be provided as part of a development.


These reports will incorporate a comprehensive review of the scheme against the Council’s affordable housing policies and guidance. These will sometimes incorporate an evaluation of the Gross Development Value.


Here at VP, we are experts in Development Economics and have a great wealth of experience in affordable housing. If you need professional assistance in preparing an Affordable Housing Statement, please do get in touch and a member of our team will be happy to help.


We would note that if you intend to negotiate the policy compliant contribution, you will need to submit a Viability Assessment instead of an Affordable Housing Statement. We have more information on these assessments here.
