Bishop of St Albans asks about affordable housing

The Bishop of St Albans received the following written answer on 1st November 2022:

The Lord Bishop of St Albans asked His Majesty’s Government what progress they have made on their plans to scrap the new affordability rules for housing developments.

Baroness Scott of Bybrook (Con): National policy currently states that sites under ten units (or five units or fewer in designated rural areas) should not be required to provide affordable housing. A decision (attached) was taken in April 2021 not to take forward a proposal to change the threshold at that stage, but to keep the situation under review.
