Question to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government:
To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, if he will make it his policy to include and make specific reference to rent-to-buy in the definition of affordable housing in the National Planning Policy Framework.
Answered by Alok Sharma - Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
Subject to the outcome of the consultation on the Housing White Paper, we envisage that affordable rent to buy housing which meets the criteria set out in the proposed definition of affordable housing would be classified as affordable housing in the revised National Planning Policy Framework.
