How will new viability assessment rules affect developers?

Earlier in the year, the UK government’s announcement of new planning rules and viability guidance came amongst a bid to increase the quantity of affordable housing amongst the UK housing crisis and crack down on developers that have used viability loopholes to reduce affordable housing quotas.

As we touched upon recently, updates to the draft National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) should provide developers with more opportunity and freedom in developing existing brownfield sites, but there is little mention within the framework of openings for development on alternative plots.

The rise of co-living

Today, co-living has progressed into a social movement that focuses not just on the convenience that shared housing provides, but on a sense of community and collaboration. With the average rent in London having risen to £1884 per month and an increasing demand for housing, we examine the trends in co-living, as well as potential investment opportunities for developers.
