Affordable housing

7. Developers information

If you're a developer, please read the current adopted Supplementary Planning Document (SPG) on Affordable Housing.

The affordable housing requirements explanatory note is also a useful guide to the various planning documents and policies that relate to affordable housing in Stockport. It's not intended as an SPG, but for ease of reference brings together a number of strands of relevant policy, guidance and information.
