Decision:

Adopt the Spitfire Green Local Lettings Plan. This Local Lettings Plan is for the letting of new build acquisition units across phase five of Thanet District Council’s Accelerated Affordable Homes Programme. The Programme will deliver at least 400 new affordable homes by 2027. 

 

This lettings plan is designed to support the sustainable letting of the acquired properties. The purpose of this plan is to encourage residents to develop lasting connections with the area; to help sustain a community; to reduce overcrowding and tackle other housing needs in the local area and create a sense of place.

 

Reasons for the decision:

To support the sustainable letting of the acquisition properties. The purpose of this plan is to encourage residents to develop lasting connections with the area; to help sustain a community; to reduce overcrowding and tackle other housing needs in the local area.

Alternative options considered:

Council considered letting these as per normal allocations policy but given the fact this is a new-build site and that the homes are in close proximity, Council felt that a local lettings plan was needed to achieve the ambitions outlined above.
