Affordable Housing: Construction
To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what estimate his Department has made of the potential effect on the number of affordable homes for rent or sale which will be built as a result of removing planning requirements for some property development applications as set out by the Prime Minister on 30 June 2020.

Our proposals to introduce new permitted development rights to create new homes will mean that more homes to buy or rent will be delivered than would otherwise be the case. We have not made any estimates of how many of these extra homes will be affordable homes.
