Consultation Details

This Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) sets out in more detail how the City Council intends to agree S106 contributions for affordable housing from PBSA developments.

Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) provide further detail and explanation to support policy in the Nottingham City Local Plan. SPDs are a material consideration in making decisions on planning applications.

This SPD is being prepared to explain the implications of the Local Plan Part 2 (Nottingham City Land and Planning Policies Development Plan Document, LAPP) Policy HO3: Affordable Housing. In particular, it sets out the commuted sum that will be negotiated in lieu of on-site affordable housing provision on sites providing Purpose Built Student Accommodation within Nottingham City

Purpose Built Student Accommodation (PBSA) is an essential element of the housing market helping to provide a viable alternative for a growing student population within the City. Our recently adopted Local Plan Part 2 makes provision for contributions to be negotiated with PBSA providers for helping to meet the wider affordable housing need of the City.

The document is open for consultation for 10 weeks to give members of the public, organisations including the Universities, developers, and other interested parties the opportunity to comment on the draft document.

In light of the Coronavirus pandemic this consultation will be taken place online only as libraries and council offices remain closed.
