The Affordable Workspace SPD sets out guidance on Local Plan policies for affordable and flexible workspace. It also provides information and advice on types of affordable workspace, and information to help you make a successful planning application.

Accredited affordable workspace provider list

The form linked below is for workspace providers who wish to join the H&F affordable workspace accreditation scheme.

Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s Local Plan sets out where planning applications for new business development schemes will be expected to provide affordable workspace. The council will maintain a list of accredited workspace providers in the borough who can operate this workspace. Download the current list below.

Please note: Being on the workspace provider list could increase exposure to new business opportunities. Inclusion on the list does not constitute a contract with Hammersmith & Fulham Council or guarantee organisations new commissions and has no direct monetary value in itself.

Where any discussions take place between developers and providers, the council will waive any responsibility.

Viability evidence

The SPD was informed by new local evidence and viability reports:

Employment & Skills Code and Supply Chain Procurement Code

The Affordable Workspace SPD refers to codes for local Employment & Skills and Supply Chain Procurement. These codes are intended to advise and support planning applicants understand what economic development planning contributions may be required for a planning application.  They also provide a justification for these requirements. Please find links to the two sets of codes below.
