Reduced Affordable Homes Threshold Quashed

As a as a result of a recent High Court ruling on Friday the policy to exempt small developments from affordable housing contributions, which excludes developments of 10 homes or fewer, or 1,000 square metres or less has been quashed.

This ruling does not really come as a surprise as the potential source of reduced development costs has been found to be incompatible with the statutory planning framework.

Additionally, the vacant buildings credit is also scrapped with immediate effect by the ruling as well.
