Developers told to build affordable homes

01/11/2007


More affordable homes are to be built in Manchester thanks to an initiative by the city council.

All planning applications for new developments that comprise more than 15 homes now have to include a provision for affordable homes.

Developers that fail to make provisions for those struggling to get on the Manchester property ladder will be refused planning permission.

The scheme is part of a wider effort to ensure that one in five houses in the city is affordable for those on low incomes.

Councillor Neil Swannick said: "Manchester's population is growing, with people wanting to stay in the city and newcomers wanting to move in.

"The council is committed to increasing the number of families who can afford to buy homes in the city."

In the past 12 months, the average City of Manchester house price has risen by 8.8 per cent and now stands at £109,169, rising to £128,425 in the wider Manchester area.
