'Affordable' homes could be scrapped

PLANS to remove affordable housing from a development in Stratford, in exchange for a £5million payment to the council, could be given the go-ahead.

Maudsley Park in Great Alne was granted planning permission in 2011 to build 132 private care cottages and and additional 47 which are classed as affordable homes.

But the failure to find an affordable homes provider has led the developers to apply to the council to instead create 44 extra care cottages.

The council has been offered £5million by developers Helical if they accept their proposal to not build any affordable housing on the site.

Councillors are set to discuss the plans at a meeting on Wednesday (January 11).
