Section 106 Contributions For Affordable Housing Received From Small Sites (10 or less units) in the Last 5 Years

We're waiting for Lance Calder to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Richmond upon Thames Borough Council,
Please provide me with:
1) A summary of all section 106 contributions received from small sites (as defined in the the NPPF) which relate to the provision of affordable housing, for the last 5 fiscal years.
2) A summary of how the above money has been spent again in the last 5 fiscal years including the sums directly spent on building affordable housing. Please provide addresses of sites funded with the above contributions and number of housing units built.

The current monitoring reports published provide an inadequate picture of how these contributions are being spent, so please don't refer me to these. I await your response.

Yours faithfully,
Lance Calder

Dear Lance Calder,

 

Re: Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000

 

Your request for information which was received on 29 August 2017 has been
considered.

 

Please find our response below.

 

Your request and our response:

 

1)    A summary of all section 106 contributions received from small sites
(as defined in the the NPPF) which relate to the provision of affordable
housing, for the last 5 fiscal years.

 

2012/13 - £81,508

2013/14 – £511,030

2014/15 – £711,413

2015/16 – £611,023

2016/17 - £1,692,587

 

 

2) A summary of how the above money has been spent again in the last 5
fiscal years including the sums directly spent on building affordable
housing. Please provide addresses of sites funded with the above
contributions and number of housing units built.

 

Richmond Council uses its Housing Capital Programme to support delivery of
affordable housing in the Borough. The Housing Capital Programme is funded
from a number of sources such as prudential borrowing, S106 financial
contributions for affordable housing, New Homes Bonus and grant funding.
Use of S106 sums is not agreed against specific schemes in advance as it
is allocated by the Council’s Corporate Finance team annually against
eligible schemes financed by the Housing Capital Programme.  An annual
breakdown of specific S106 Affordable Housing Fund expenditure is
therefore not possible.  Furthermore, Capital funding payment for each
scheme is generally split between start on site and on completion.  As
these two milestones mostly occur in different financial years it is not
possible to specify the number of units funded on an annual basis.
