Local Occupancy Clause - Birchover Restrictions - In addition to stipulating these houses must be made available at a discount to open market value the Peak District National Park Authority has placed a number of restrictions on who is eligible to occupy the 6 new affordable houses just completed in the village of Birchover. Full details of the restrictions are set out in section 106 Planning Obligation deed dated 23rd September 2013 between the developer and the Peak Park Authority. A brief summary of those provisions is set out below.
