Answer for Planning Applications Containing Affordable Housing 2

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am aware that there may be some schemes there were referable to the Mayor, where the applicant has subsequently sought to vary the affordable housing contribution. However, this has been done through a variation in the section 106 agreement (which is not referable to the Mayor) rather than a revised application. I am not aware of any schemes that have been re-submitted with lower levels of affordable housing provision.
