In line with Government guidance, an updated five year housing land supply paper was usually reviewed by Members on an annual basis.  The last paper was agreed by the Development Control Committee on 16th November 2017.

 

In November 2018, following an initial update, Members agreed that the November 2017 position should be extended in the short term until the next Paper was considered.  This would enable relatively recent publications of the new National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) and National Planning Practice Guidance (NPPG) to be assessed as they included updated guidance on the compilation of five year housing land supply papers.

 

A draft Five Year Housing Land Supply Paper was due to be considered by Members on 6th February 2019 however, this meeting was cancelled due to concerns regarding the deliverability of some of the housing supply components in the Draft Five Year Housing Supply Paper. Those concerns had now been given due consideration.  The Paper was updated to incorporate further details relating to the monitoring of housing completions.

 

This report set out the five year housing land supply position for the Council from 1st December 2018 – 30th November 2023. It concluded that there was a deliverable five year housing land supply in the Borough.

 

The Legal Representative referred to correspondence received from the agent of an interested developer.  In relation to the content of this correspondence, the Council had taken the opportunity to consult with a barrister who was a specialist in planning matters.  The barrister’s advice was reported to Members.

 

The Chief Planner advised that for ease of reference, a list of appendices and their page numbers had been circulated to Members.

 

The following paragraph numbers were inserted to replace ‘xxx’ on page 111 of Appendix 3:-

 

Paragraph 1, first sentence – ‘Paragraph 1.30 of the 5YHLS sets out that the Borough was attributed an annual average housing supply monitoring target of a minimum 641 units per annum in the 2016 London Plan.’

 

Paragraph 2, first and second sentences – ‘As specified in paragraph 2.19 of the 5YHLS 2019, an assessment has been made of the contribution that small sites (<0.25ha) have made to housing delivery from 2010/11 – 2017/18.  This data represents the most up-to-date data when the 5YHLS was compiled in line with the observations made by the Inspector who reported on the ‘Dylon’ decision (APP/G5180/W/16/314428) as made reference to in paragraph 2.7 of the Council’s 5YHLS.’

 

Paragraph 3 – ‘Paragraph 2.20 of the 5YHLS makes reference to the reasoning for including unit completions from the use of permitted development rights.’

 

Paragraph 4, final sentence – ‘Paragraph 2.22 of the 5YHLS sets out the Council’s reasoning behind this uplift.’

 

Paragraph 10, first sentence – ‘Paragraphs 2.59 to 2.62 of the 2019 5YHLS make reference to the fact that only sites that have commenced [accommodating 9+ units] are included in the supply.’

 

The final sentence of paragraph 2.20 (page 85 of the report), was amended to read:-  ...  view the full minutes text for item 50
