Roberta Blackman-Woods – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Communities and Local Government

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Roberta Blackman-Woods on 2014-03-24.

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what proportion of the development announced in Budget 2014 at Ebbsfleet will consist of affordable homes.

Nick Boles

The Government does not impose a particular level of affordable housing for housing schemes. The percentage of affordable units will be a matter for local decision making taking account of the local authorities’ local plans and site viability. Unrealistic Section 106 agreements result in no development, no regeneration and no community benefits.
