What Are Comprehensive Permits, And How Are They Used To Create Affordable Housing?

A comprehensive permit is issued by a municipality to a developer who proposes to build housing in which at least 25% of the units are affordable to low­income residents. A comprehensive permit is an all­encompassing permit which subsumes all permits and approvals normally issued by other local boards. A comprehensive permit typically allows a developer to build at a higher density than is normally allowed under a town's zoning laws.
