star this property answer text <p>Stakeholders report that the use of viability assessments can add complexity and uncertainty to the planning process. This can lead to delays and diminished contributions towards infrastructure and affordable housing.</p><p>The Government consulted on proposals to reform the viability assessment process within the<em> Planning for the right homes in the right places consultation</em>. This will create more certainty about the contributions developers are expected to make to affordable housing and reduce the use of viability assessments at the planning application stage. The viability of the expected contributions should be tested at the plan-making stage. Where tested in plan-making, the issue should not usually need to be tested again at the planning application stage.</p><p>The consultation has now closed and we are currently analysing the responses. A further announcement will be made in due course.</p><p> </p> more like this
