    From the Affordable Housing Statement by Pentland Homes on DDC planning application 15/01184 for 31 houses on the site behind the Lydden Surgery -

    "In the case of the development proposed at Lydden, the applicants have submitted a scheme of exceptional quality in terms of layout, design and materials, together with a significant reduction in numbers compared to the Local Plan allocation. In addition the topography of the site requires significant abnormal costs. Consequently it is considered that the viability of the development would be unsustainable if affordable housing is provided and specialist consultants will be preparing a detailed viability appraisal to support this view."

    There is hardly any affordable housing in Lydden (although in fact all the houses are more affordable than most places in the district as there is no shop, play area, mobile signal or decent broadband!).
