Statement of Adoption of Local Development Documents
Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended)
The Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012 (as amended)
Notice of adoption of Affordable Housing Delivery Supplementary Planning Document (March 2023)
NOTICE is hereby given that in accordance with Regulation 14 and Regulation 35 of the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012, at its meeting on 30 March 2023, Woking Borough Council formally adopted the revised Affordable Housing Delivery Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), which replaces the previously existing version of the SPD.
The Affordable Housing Delivery SPD provides detail on how the Council’s affordable housing policy, Core Strategy policy CS12, is to be implemented. The first version of the SPD was adopted in 2014, so a thorough revision of the document has been necessary to meet today’s circumstances.
The Affordable Housing Delivery SPD was the subject of public consultation between 21 November 2021 and 19 December 2022. A Consultation Statement setting out details on how the community was engaged in preparing each of the documents has been produced, which is available on the website or in paper form at the various deposit venues as set out below.
Any person aggrieved by the adoption of the Affordable Housing Delivery SPD may make an application to the High Court under Section 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 on the grounds that:
- The document is not within the appropriate power; and/or
- A procedural requirement has not been complied with.
Any such application must be made to the Court not later than three months starting from the adoption date (in this particular case, 30 March 2023).
