109: After Clause 143, insert the following new Clause-“Affordable housing contributions in small scale development(1) Local planning authorities may require sites falling within subsection (2) to make an affordable housing contribution, in cash or kind, determined by the requirements of the housing market of that area. (2) Authorities may require contributions from-(a) developments of 10 units or less, and developments which have a maximum combined gross floorspace of no more than 1000sqm (gross internal area), and(b) developments in a rural area or an area where-(i) planning permission for the site was granted wholly or partly on the basis of a policy for the provision of housing on rural exception sites;(ii) the site is in a national park or an area with equal protection to that of a national park; or(iii) the site is in an area designated under section 82 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (designation of areas) as an area of outstanding natural beauty.(3) In subsection (2) a rural area is defined as-(a) any settlement with a population of fewer than 3,000 people at the most recent national census, or (b) any settlement with a population of between 3,000 and 10,000 people at the most recent national census, and designated as a rural area by the Secretary of State following representations from the relevant local authority.”

109A: Because the Lords Amendment represents an undesirable fetter on the powers conferred on the Secretary of State by the section inserted by clause 143.

109B: Clause 143, Page 72, line 35, at end insert-“( ) This section does not apply in relation to a planning obligation if-(a) planning permission for the development was granted wholly or partly on the basis of a policy for the provision of housing on rural exception sites, or(b) the obligation relates to development in a National Park or in an area designated under section 82 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 as an area of outstanding natural beauty.”

110: After Clause 143, insert the following new Clause-“Sustainable drainage systems(1) The Water Industry Act 1991 is amended as follows.(2) After section 106(1B) (right to communicate with public sewers) insert- “(1C) The right under subsection (1) is subject to section 106AB.”(3) After section 106A insert-“106AB Sustainable drainage systems(1) A person may only exercise the right under section 106(1) in respect of surface water if the relevant drainage system is designed and constructed according to-(a) the non-statutory technical standards for sustainable drainage systems or any replacement standards as may be published by the Minister from time to time; and(b) the planning permission or development consent order for the development drained by the drainage system in question.(2) In this section “drainage system” has the same meaning as in paragraph 1 of Schedule 3 to the Flood and Water Management Act 2010.””

110A: Because the Lords Amendment is unnecessary and impractical.
