Housing Supply Statement
Five Year Housing Land Supply Update 2015
Following two years of significant delivery of planning consents and housing completions, as at 31 March 2015, based on a SHMA OAN and excluding the emerging Local Plan 2031 site allocations, which addresses our need, the district has approximately 4.2 years of housing land supply, including a 20 per cent buffer.
As the Local Plan progresses through the examination process, subject to the Inspector’s response, greater weight can be applied to policies in our plan when assessing planning applications. Once we have an adopted Local Plan 2031, we will have an appropriate and robust five year housing land supply.
The council will be producing an updated housing supply statement to support the emerging Local Plan 2031 through the examination process.
24 December 2015.
