Five-year housing land supply position statement (as at 01 April 2022)

Position statement methodology

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires all local planning authorities to identify and annually update its rolling five-year supply of housing land. Whether a five-year housing land supply does or doesn't exist is an important material consideration when determining planning applications for new housing.

The position statement explains the approach and method undertaken. It is made up of three component parts:

  1. calculating the five-year housing land supply requirement
  2. identifying and assessing deliverable sites to inform the housing land supply
  3. calculation of the five-year housing land supply position
