On housing or mixed-use development sites within the development boundaries of villages of 0.2 hectares or more, or housing developments of 5 or more dwellings, 40% of the total number of dwellings to be provided shall be affordable housing for local people.

Affordable housing provision below 40% of the total number of dwellings will only be accepted where the applicant fully and financially demonstrates that 40% provision will make the development of the whole site uneconomic based on the current housing market and all the costs of the development.
