I think 40% is way too high.It depends on who is allowed affordable accommodation. Are the people going to blend in with the people of Rye, or are they going to cause problems?

While the number of affordable dwellings to be provided should be increased the absolute percentage requirement should not exceed that stated in the Preferred Strategy and the determination of the percentage mix of intermediate and social rented housing should be deferred for further viability work (as proposed in respect of thresholds) on which the Council should consult and that should embrace the need for a cascade to take account of the viability of development (including the availability of social housing grant).

There is no need for this ridiculous mantra of "affordable housing" in rural areas . there are no jobs for the inhabitants of such housing and they will merely drive to Hastings or some other urban area for work.

There is an intrinsic risk, given the current market position, of a over zealous reliance on Developer led Section 106 Planning Gain schemes progressing.
The overall numbers of homes seems reasonable and achievable although the ratio of homes from S106 will be, in our opinion, lower than thouse mentioned.

On the basis that the Council's intention is to defer further work on the options for percentages and thresholds for affordable housing, it is suggested that the Council continue to negotiate the existing level of affordable housing as set out in Local Plan Policy HG1. It is also relevant to take account of current market conditions.

Communities Table (page 90)

For clarity and consistency, affordable housing provision should be applied at a consistent level District-wide. It is considered that the 35% level recommended in the South East Plan would provide greater incentive for housing sites to be brought forward for development.
