South Holland District Council to decide on Spalding developer's bid to reduce affordable housing element on Holbeach site
A developer has applied to reduce the affordable housing and financial contributions imposed by a planning permission.
Ashwood Homes received planning permission last year to build 83 homes in Fen Road, Holbeach with requirements to build 21 affordable units along with paying around £55,440 to the NHS and £404,337 to the education authority.
The firm has now applied to South Holland District Council to reduce this to 7 affordable homes with £521,783 to be apportioned to the Lincolnshire County Council’s education and or the NHS.
The planning committee will be discussing the application during their meeting on Wednesday next week.
The report also includes two alternative scenarios for members to consider:
- 18 affordable units with no other contributions
- 12 affordable units with half contributions to the NHS and education.
A viability assessment was lodged.
