EDDC: Consultation on affordable housing (but not social housing)

Owl wonders if this is appropriate during the run-up to local elections in May – a time when only non-controversial and non-political issues should be brought up.

But, more importantly, surely there are two words missing from the document?
Shouldn’t it be “SOCIAL AND Affordable Housing Policy?

“The draft Affordable Housing SPD and accompanying documents are being published for consultation, available through the links below:
