Affordable Housing Development Viability Study

Adams Integra, September 2008

In formulating planning-led affordable housing policies three Local Authorities – Worcester City Council, Malvern Hills District Council and Wychavon District Council – jointly commissioned Adams Integra to study the effect of various policy positions on development viability.

This was in the context of building the evidence base for, and considering, the affordable housing content of the South Worcestershire Joint Core Strategy, for which draft Preferred Options were being drawn up.

The study is to be considered alongside the Councils’ developing wider evidence base, including on the local housing market and housing needs, and information on the range of site types.
