Affordable housing requirements and parking guidance

Affordable housing provision requirements

If the proposal is for no more than 10 dwellings and the total combined floor area does not exceed 1,000sqm, then no affordable housing is required. Otherwise the requirement is as follows:

Location Affordable Housing provision requirement
Forest Heath sites (in primary and secondary villages only) of between 5-9 dwellings or sites of between 0.1ha – 0.33ha 20% provision
Forest Heath sites of 10 dwellings and above or sites over 0.33ha 30% provision

Parking Guidance

The 'Suffolk Guidance for Parking' technical guidance document replaced the Suffolk Advisory Parking Standards (2002); following public consultation in November 2014. In 2015 the document was updated to reflect new Government guidance.  Further information regarding parking guidance can be found on the Suffolk County Council website.
