What is an HPP?
A Housing Production Plan (HPP) is a proactive and studied means towards developing affordable housing that is in keeping with the Town's own affordable housing policies and preferences (PDF).
The HPP is not a construction plan, but more specifically is intended to communicate to the state how Weston can address its affordable housing responsibilities. This plan contains three elements, which outlines for the state:
- a comprehensive assessment of Weston's housing needs
- affordable housing goals to meet the needs
- strategies towards achieving the goals
In 2015, Weston developed its first plan, which is also available online. The document is valid for five years and is the reason for the update.
