John Grogan Labour, Keighley
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what safeguards will be put in place on the proposed entry level exception sites to prevent homes being resold at market rates.
Kit Malthouse Minister of State (Housing, Communities and Local Government)
The new entry-level exception site policy, as set out in the revised National Planning Policy Framework, was published on 24 July 2018. Sites should comprise entry-level homes that offer one or more types of affordable housing, as defined within the revised National Planning Policy Framework’s glossary. Local authorities will determine applications, including where there should be provisions for the homes to remain at an affordable price for future eligible households.
