This supplementary planning document provides guidance on Craven Local Plan Policy H2: Affordable Housing and other related policies

The Council's Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document adds further detail to those policies of the Craven Local Plan that are key to the delivery of affordable housing and provides additional guidance to help applicants understand how their proposals can satisfy policy requirements. The SPD explains how proposals can satisfy each criterion of Policy H2 (the plan’s primary policy on affordable housing), assists applicants in preparing planning applications and emphasises the importance of early pre-application discussions with Council planners and housing officers.


The following documents provide details of the consultation, environmental screening and adoption processes, which are required to support the making of an SPD.
