Housing Land Evidence update pdf icon PDF 135 KB

Report of Director of Economic Development and Planning enclosed.

Minutes:

The Director of Economic Development and Planning submitted a report providing members with key information in relation to the updated Housing Land Availability Survey that had a base date of 30 March 2021; and to seek agreement to publish to undertake key stakeholder consultation in relation to this baseline survey.

 

Committee were reminded that the Council has a duty to ensure a five-year supply of deliverable housing land which should be identified at all points during any plan period. Current guidance emphasises that Local Authorities need to demonstrate that there is a reasonable prospect that housing sites are developable and deliverable within the next five years using robust and up to date evidence.

 

The Core Strategy was adopted in 2014, and was currently undergoing its five year anniversary review. National Guidance dictates that the baseline for housing requirements should be based on the Government’s standard methodology; the calculation for which is a baseline of 137 dwellings per annum. The relevant housing land supply set out in evidence is 14.2 years measured against the standard methodology. Monitored against the Core Strategy requirement for comparison the supply is 6.5 years which means the Council can demonstrate a 5-year supply of housing land and strategic housing requirements can be met.

 

However, it was reported that, one of the issues that had arisen was the availability of up-to-date evidence from landowners and developers to support the assumptions, so it was proposed that the document be published in draft form inviting comments from stakeholders on the evidence used and the assumptions made. The consultation period would be for four weeks to allow for comments after which it could be published in final form, subject to any technical amendments or adverse issues raised.

 

RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:

 

1.    Note the information set out in the latest Housing Land Availability Study, endorse its publication and agree to publish the 5-year land supply statement for a period of four weeks stakeholder consultation;

 

2.    Following the consultation period and subject to there being no issues that would warrant further consideration by members, in agreement with the Chair of this committee, that the document be published as the Council’s baseline 5-year housing position; and

 

3.    Authorise the Director of Economic Development and Planning to undertake such technical amendments as are deemed necessary.
