Let's close the viability loophole for good
We’re losing out on affordable homes because of a loophole in national planning laws. And we desperately need these homes – with 1.2 million households on the waiting list for social housing in England, but only 6,200 social homes built in 2015/16.
But what does the situation look like where you are?
We must act now
Developers and landowners use this loophole (the ‘viability loophole’) to wriggle out of building the affordable homes they should. It means they can promise one thing but deliver another, while maximising their profits.
But right now, the government is reviewing these laws for the first time in six years. Now’s our chance to close the viability loophole for good – so it’s an opportunity we can’t miss. Will you act now, to help get the affordable homes we need?Yes, I'll take a stand
