The council adopted a new planning obligations supplementary planning document (SPD) on 18 June 2015. This SPD includes policy on the provision of affordable housing in new housing developments, and it therefore supersedes the affordable housing policies in the housing planning guidance. As a result of this, the following policies in the housing planning guidance have been cancelled from 18 June 2015:
- Policy HOU3 - quantity of affordable housing
- Policy HOU4 - type of affordable housing
- Policy HOU5 - design of affordable housing
- Policy HOU6 - occupancy of affordable housing
Policies HOU1 (type of new housing), HOU2 (size of new dwellings) and HOU7 (demonstrating a need for student housing) remain as adopted policies that supplement saved policies of the unitary development plan.
The housing planning guidance policies that have been saved beyond 18 June 2015 can be downloaded below. The original version of the housing planning guidance, as adopted on 20 December 2006, and associated supporting documents can also be downloaded below.
Planning applications for student housing should have regard to the Salford student housing demand study produced by DTZ on behalf of Salford City Council in January 2013.
