Re: Antic pubs have withdrawn from the Greyhound

but it is totally at the Local Authorities discretion as to what % is allocated. (subject to negotiation) True to a certain extent, but the amount of Affordable Housing is dictated by adopted policy, not "discretion". Developers will try and minimise this with financial arguments based on viabilty,...

Re: Housing - let's just not go there!

No Eagle, what they actually do is visit your property and say "It's a nice place, I'd live here." Then offer a small incentive to move to a new build one bed flat in the form of £2000 and when the occupier has fulfilled their part of the bargain the council say."Because we have had to make changes...
