Recommendation for potential sites to progress affordable housing delivery in Herefordshire

At Cabinet on 26 November 2020 the decision was taken on how the council will progress the delivery of net zero carbon affordable housing across the county over the coming years.


Cabinet also approved Phase 2 of this strategic work to develop a pipeline of sites suitable for development as affordable housing to support discussions with key partners including Homes England.

This paper seeks agreement to proceed with the outline feasibility of an initial number of selected council owned sites and any suitable sites in third party ownership identified across the county in order to progress the pipeline of suitable sites. The aim is to identify sites and prioritise using a market needs analysis
