Holding answer received on 26 April 2018

The draft revised National Planning Policy Framework proposes that plans should set out the contributions expected for infrastructure and affordable housing. This will help communities to understand what affordable housing is expected and enable them to hold developers to account. In 2016/17, section 106 secured £4 billion for affordable housing. The amount of affordable housing provided in future will depend on local need and priorities, and housing market trends.
