Housing Development

The main role of Housing Development (HD) is to deliver on the Council's corporate objective of helping to provide affordable homes for local people.

HD work in partnership with a variety of agencies including developers, Registered Providers, the National Park Authority, the Homes and Communities Agency, and the third sector, to deliver affordable homes and housing solutions throughout the New Forest. We aim to address housing need by encouraging a variety of tenures; affordable rent, shared ownership and intermediate rent and low cost home ownership.

A preferred partnership of Registered Providers work with the Council to deliver affordable homes, these are:

We are a founding member of the HARAH Partnership (Hampshire Alliance for Rural Affordable Housing) with 6 other local authorities, working together with the Homes and Communities Agency, Rural Housing Enablers and Hyde Housing Association to deliver rural housing through rural exception sites to meet the needs of local people.

The council is also a member of the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH), a partnership dedicated to sustainable economic-led growth. PUSH covers the Waterside and Totton areas of the New Forest.

The National Park Authority is responsible for planning within the National Park area and we work closely with them to maximise opportunities to meet affordable housing targets.

HD provide advice on the type, size and tenure of affordable housing that they would support for any particular location in the New Forest. We would recommend that you read Advisory Note on the Implementation of Core Strategy Policy CS15 PDF Document to familiarise yourself with what the Council are seeking for affordable housing. The full Core Strategy Policy is also available. PDF Document

There is no longer a site size threshold. Most residential developments are now required to include provisions for affordable housing (see policy CS15) The Level of affordable housing requirements have increased from 35% to either 50% or 40% depending on the location. (see policy CS15).
