Five Year Housing Land Supply

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires local planning authorities to identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites, sufficient to provide a minimum of five years’ worth of housing.

The 2020 Five Year Housing Land Supply Statement (.pdf | 2.5mb) is now available.

This is based on the Local Housing Need requirement, calculated using the standard method set out in national planning guidance, and a deliverable housing land supply, containing only sites with planning permission at 31st March 2020.

The Five Year Housing Land Supply Statement demonstrates that the Council has an 8.3 years’ supply.
