Background evidence on viability

Studies that provide background evidence on viability for the Rushmoor Plan.

Economic viability study 2017

Under national planning guidance, local plans must be deliverable as a whole, and that is also the relevant test for the setting of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) rates.  Local policies must not be set at a level that is too high when all relevant development costs are considered.  

In the past, we have commissioned studies, which assess the viability of affordable housing requirements and a range of other infrastructure requirements on development. The most recent study, published in 2017, included the potential scope for introducing a Community Infrastructure Levy in the borough while assessing and advising on potential Local Plan policies. This was done by considering the economic viability of residential and commercial/non-residential development scenarios in the borough.

Community infrastructure viability study 2012

This report tests the ability of a range of development types throughout the borough to yield contributions to infrastructure requirements through the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).  Levels of CIL were tested in combination with our other planning requirements, including the provision of affordable housing. 

Affordable housing viability study 2009

In 2009, we commissioned a joint survey with Hart District Council to consider the viability of requiring different levels of affordable housing.
