The Council has a five-year supply of deliverable housing sites, as it has been established in its recently adopted Local Plan, in accordance with paragraph 74 of the National Planning Policy Framework. This position will remain until 31st October 2019.

The Council is aiming to “fix” its five-year housing land supply position for the year from 1st November 2019 onwards by producing an Annual Position Statement. The Council has prepared and consulted on its Draft Annual Position Statement. The Draft Annual Position Statement and accompanying Engagement Statement were submitted to the Secretary of State for determination by the 31st July 2019 deadline. The outcome of the determination is expected by October 2019. This will dictate the Council’s five year housing land supply position from 1st November 2019 onwards.
