From the FORWARD of the Draft document ...

This Strategy sets out our vision for improvement in the delivery of affordable
housing to meet local needs. It builds on a strong track record of delivery and takes
account of the progress achieved through the Affordable Housing Position Statement

Since 2004/05 to 2018/19, 875 much needed new affordable homes have been completed in Mole Valley. This has been achieved in spite of reduced government capital subsidy, high land values, changes to the National Planning Policy Framework on affordable housing, and over 90% of Mole Valley being countryside, of which the majority is Green Belt.
We are ambitious for the future and our aim with this strategy is:
 to increase the delivery of affordable homes that are of sustainable construction, energy efficient and where possible have social rents; and
 in the longer term, with the right conditions, become a developer and potentially a landlord of affordable/council housing.
