Conwy CBC appointed Three Dragons to prepare an Affordable Housing Viability Assessment (AHVA) compliant with the requirements of the Welsh Assembly Government's TAN2 which emphasises the importance of viability testing policy targets.
The overall aim and purpose of the study is to:
- Advise on the most ambitious yet achievable and viable target(s) and threshold(s) for affordable housing which fully reflect the availability of a range of finance towards affordable housing and reflects priority infrastructure needs;
- To assess the impact of the profile of sites within the Conwy area on housing viability;
- Advise on a robust policy position with respect to the setting of thresholds which do not impact on the delivery of housing in the Borough.
