The Country Land & Business Association (CLA) has published a new report looking at the potential role of ‘Entry level exception sites’ in delivering affordable homes in rural communities. Entry level exception sites are a new proposal in the draft NPPF currently being consulted on.
The report also looks at the limitations and opportunities associated with traditional rural exception sites. Of particular interest to this area is the finding that five Local Authorities delivered 45% of all affordable housing on rural exception sites in England between 2011 and 2017. And Cambridgeshire delivered 424 of these homes making it the third largest deliverer in England!
