Local Planning Authorities are required to assess whether they can meet the housing requirement for their area. The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires that Local Planning Authorities update their 5 year housing land supply assessment on a yearly basis. Whether the Council can demonstrate a 5 year supply of ‘deliverable’ housing is important as it needs to be considered when planning applications for new housing are determined.
The report, which can be accessed using the link below, demonstrates the extent to which the current supply of deliverable housing sites in the Borough contribute to a 5 year supply of deliverable housing sites. The report covers the 5 year period from 1st April 2012 to 31st March 2017.
Under the provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 the Council has a statutory duty to prepare an Annual Monitoring Report and to submit it to the Secretary of State by the end of each calendar year.
In March 2011, the Government withdrew the formal guidance on producing AMRs and removed the need to report on National Performance Indicators. This has given the Council more flexibility and autonomy to tailor the AMR and respond directly to local issues. In response to this flexibility this year’s AMR has been streamlined and has a local focus being based on the Borough’s performance compared to the Core Spatial Strategy strategic aims.
The AMR document forms part of the Council’s Local Development Framework. The 2011 AMR covers the 2010/11 financial year (01 April 2010 to 31 March 2011), and was submitted to the Secretary of State on 23 December 2011.
The AMR serves the following main purposes:
This document provides detailed information on all house building in the Borough, including completions, dwellings under construction, planning permissions granted and housing trajectory figures. House prices and percentage of housing built on previously developed land are discussed amongst other issues. The HDMR is a major contributor to the statutory Annual Monitoring Report. The HDMR 2010 is included within the Appendices of the 2010 AMR, which can be accessed via the link at the top of the page.
