Volume 468: debated on Thursday 29 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 12 September 2007, Official Report, column 2138W, on Regional Planning and Development: South West Region, how much affordable housing she expects to be built in (a) Forest of Dean constituency and (b) Gloucestershire in the next five years. (166304)

It is for each of the Gloucestershire Local Planning Authorities to determine both the need and the amount of affordable housing to be built in their areas, having regard to the planning guidance set out in PPS3 and the draft Regional Spatial Strategy. The Gloucestershire planning authorities are now preparing local development documents in which they will set an overall (i.e. plan-led) target for the amount of affordable housing to be provided in their areas.
