The thing to always remember is that if developers could get away with providing zero social/affordable units in their developments, they gladly would. Every time. The only reason why there's any affordable units - laughable though the 'affordable' notion is anyway - is because they're being compelled to do so in order for their profit raking development to go ahead. But if there's any way they can wriggle out of their commitment to affordable homes once planning permission is granted, they'll be right on it, like the profiteering scumbags they are. e.g. Barratt Homes, Brixton Square and the fight to retain affordable housing in Brixton.
