POLICY HC3

In areas where a demonstrable lack of affordable housing exists, the Council will seek to negotiate the inclusion of an appropriate element of affordable housing on sites which are suitable in locational/accessibility terms and where this is not ruled out by exceptional development costs.

In most parts of the Plan area such negotiations will focus on new housing developments of 25 or more dwellings or sites of 1ha or more or phases of such developments. However, in the large and small villages subject to Policies EV16 and EV17 and Swansea West Strategic Housing Policy Zone where opportunities for housing development are more constrained, negotiations for the inclusion of a percentage of affordable housing in new housing schemes will be sought on new housing developments of 10 or more dwellings or sites of 0.4ha or more or phases of such developments

The retention of affordable housing for such use will be secured through planning conditions, legal obligations and secure tenancy agreements.
