The Local Plan 2013 – 2033, sets out a target to provide an annual average of 620 housing completions, of which an average of 124 should be affordable. The target has now changed to the standard method which is currently 758 per annum. Please see the 5 year land supply (April 2021) and updated 5 year land supply (December 2021)

The Residential Land Monitor (RLM) as of April 2021 showed a land supply of 6,328 dwellings with 514 units started on site and 5,814 as yet unimplemented (including those with resolutions to grant planning permission pending Section 106 agreements). Cumulative net completions for the plan period so far amount to 4,938 (please note this figure differs from the RLM as demolitions/replacements are removed).

Housing Registers

Custom and Self Build Register

The Government wants to enable more people to build or commission their own homes. The self-build and custom house building register will provide an indication of demand for self and custom build in our area that can be used when developing housing and planning policies. Further information is available on our Custom and Self Build webpage.

Since 1 April 2016 we have been required to keep a register of people looking for land in our area on which to build their own homes. Also to ‘have regard’ to it in our planning, housing and regeneration functions and when disposing of any of our land. For full details please see the Self-build and Custom Housebuilding Act 2015.

Brownfield Register

The Government has required all Local Authorities to publish an annual Brownfield Register of all brownfield (previously developed land) from the end of December 2017 and then annually.

Housing Land Supply Statements

Planning Authorities are required to keep a deliverable housing supply to meet needs for at least the coming 5 years.  The five Year Land Supply statement and Gypsy/Traveller Land Supply both were published in April 2021.

Post Occupancy Surveys

Each year we do a survey of residents of new homes.
