What is the LLDC target for low cost rent in the current local plan? And what levels of low-cost rent have been achieved to date on the park and wider LLDC area?

As set out in the current local plan, affordable housing will be maximised on sites capable of providing ten units or more, broken down as 60 per cent Affordable Rent and Social Rent (Low Cost Rented Housing) and 40 per cent Intermediate.

As part of the Stratford Waterfront planning consent, Stratford Waterfront, Pudding Mill Lane and Rick Roberts Way form part of a portfolio of sites, across which 50 per cent affordable housing is to be provided. The tenure split across the three sites is 30 per cent as Low Cost Rented Housing and the remainder as Intermediate Housing.

Across the wider LLDC area of the total delivered affordable homes, including those anticipated to be completed by the end of the year, 50 per cent of homes are Affordable Rent and Social Rent (Low Cost Rented Housing), and 50 per cent Intermediate.
