Provision of Affordable Housing
Objective
Ynys Mon / Isle of Anglesey County Council invites suitably interested organisations to submit housing development proposals for 3 pilot areas to increase the number of affordable homes for families with a connection to the Island. The developments need to include low cost home ownership and intermediate rental to meet the identified housing needs.
Details of the pilot areas will be provided to those Organisations who progress to the 2nd Stage and are invited to submit detailed proposals. A desk top review of the Council’s land holdings, sites with current applications or planning permission, sites allocated in the Development Plan, Interim Policy or fall within the Exception Policy indicate a potential development number for traditional homes of:
Open Market Affordable Total
o Pilot Area 1 = 96 44 140
o Pilot Area 2 = 55 17 72
o Pilot Area 3 = 84 32 116
Totals = 235 93 328
It is recognised that to achieve development viability the proposals will need to include market homes for sale. The Council will consider ‘investing’ land values to maintain the long term affordability of the development and where appropriate utilising exception sites for affordable homes.
It is expected that the homes will, as a minimum, achieve Sustainability Code Level 3 and will meet the space standards contained in the Development Quality Requirements applicable to Registered Social Landlords.
Interested organisations will need to demonstrate that they have the ability to secure sites and fund the development costs. Organisations can work in Joint Venture or Partnership arrangements and need to have a successful record of working with Partners to provide homes, which can include homes for older persons or those with specific needs.
Development Partners will need to demonstrate a long term commitment to working with the Council to meet the housing needs of its communities.
