What is the Pebsham housing development?


What is the Council's policy on Affordable Housing?

Affordable Housing is required as part of all new residential development in Rother District that are over a certain size - 15 or more dwellings in Bexhill, Battle and Rye, and for developments of 5 or more dwellings in rural areas.

In all cases, the Council require 40% of all dwellings to be 'affordable housing'.

The relevant policy is HG1 in the adopted Local Plan.

More detailed guidance on affordable housing requirements is set out in a Supplementary Planning Document.

The Council is currently working on technical background papers assessing appropriate percentages and thresholds for the forthcoming Local Development Framework.
