We have adopted a number of Supplementary Planning Documents that elaborate on the policies in the Local Plan.
The Planning Obligations SPD is to be updated to take account of changes in May 2016 to the National Planning Practice Guidance that mean councils cannot generally seek affordable housing contributions on sites of 10 dwellings or less and with an overall floorspace of no more than 1,000 m2.
The main exceptions to this are for rural exception sites for affordable housing, or where a council has decided to charge sites of 6-10 dwellings in Designated Rural Areas under section 157 of the Housing Act 1985. Rutland is a Designated Rural Area and the Council requires financial contributions for affordable housing from sites of 6 to 10 dwellings in all parishes except Oakham and Uppingham".
Printed copies of these documents may be purchased from us for £11 each plus postage if required, please contact us for further details.
