Affordable housing plan for Darfield

Monday April 18 2016

Affordable housing Affordable housing

MORE affordable housing could be coming to Darfield.

An application for 30 affordable houses, to be built as part of the Together Housing Group off Havelock Street, adjacent to Snape Hill Road, has been made to Barnsley Council by D J Atkinson Construction Ltd.

A planning application for 32 homes was approved in 2012, but it expired in May last year.

The site was originally used for housing until it was demolished in the 1970s, and is currently unused.

affordable homes is based on a rental monthly amount. Not actually the purchase price. Easy to get round this way. Utter crap. rent em out at 400 a month for a year then kick folk out and sell em at the totally unaffordable price.

I had had this convo before but, when is a house affordable?
The large majority of so called "affordable houses" start at £100K, which is hardly, erm affordable innit?
That's the scam with the developers too when the BMBC clowns allow them to build on green belt land, oh we (BMBC) DEMAND that a miniscule percentage of the houses in your 320 house project MUST BE AFFORDABLE.
So lets do the maths shall we...
320 houses at Full price Minus 32 "affordable" = 288
288 houses X £150,000 - £250,000 = Shed loads of money for the developer.
It DOESNT cost £100,000 to build a house.
