Five-year housing land supply

The Government’s National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) sets out the government’s planning policies for England and how they should be applied by local councils.

The NPPF states that to boost significantly the supply of housing, local planning authorities should identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites to provide five years’ worth of housing against their housing requirements.

We produce a report every year which monitors our housing supply.
