First Homes - Local Eligibility Criteria June 2023

Ended on the 24 July 2023

1. Introduction

1.1. The Planning Practice Guidance (PPG) confirms that as part of Section 106 agreements, local authorities can apply eligibility criteria in addition to the national criteria. This may involve lower income caps, a local connection test, or criteria based on employment status. Any local criteria will apply for a maximum of 3 months from when a home is first marketed.

1.2. This policy statement sets out the local eligibility criteria that the Council will apply to First Homes developed in the district, and the rationale for doing so.
