31 Jul 2015 - Changes to National Planning Obligations Guidance and Affordable Housing
 

On the 31st July 2015 the National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG) was updated to state that Paragraphs 012 to 023 of 'Planning Obligations' guidance are to be removed. This means that development proposals involving a net gain in dwellings in Chiltern District will need to be considered in line with the adopted Core Strategy pdf icon Policy CS8 [207kb], the Council's Affordable Housing SPD and any other material considerations.

More details on how this effects validation requirements for planning applications are available here: Affordable Housing Contributions - Validation Requirement.
