How to prepare a valid planning application
Other supporting documents for small schemes (1 - 9 new homes) only
Our planning policy requires any development which creates one or more homes to contribute to the provision of affordable housing in Southwark.
Where affordable housing cannot be provided on or off site, a payment in lieu is usually the most realistic and deliverable option. The financial contribution will go towards the provision of affordable housing in the borough. Unless affordable housing is being provided on site and is following the fast track policy, you will need to submit a financial viability appraisal with your application. The financial viability appraisal should be prepared in accordance with the Development Viability SPD.
You should also look at the general supporting documents, as some of those requirements will be relevant to your application.
