Affordable housing developer contributions – commuted sum

Our Housing Strategy Team has published the annual update of commuted sums for each Housing Market Area (HMA).

Many housing sites have a requirement to provide 25% of the unit total as affordable housing. Instead of providing that housing onsite, where agreed, developers can pay a commuted sum instead.

How much a developer has to pay in lieu of providing a unit onsite is assessed by the District Valuer and is updated on a yearly basis.

You can view these updated values as well as further explanation at our webpage.

If you want to raise a dispute about the published assumptions, please email Affordable Housing Team within six weeks of the date of publication.
