Maintaining a 5 year land supply for housing development - % of land available
Local Authorities should identify and annually review their housing land supply. The purpose of this assessment is to consider whether there are sufficient deliverable sites within a Local Authority Area to allow for the provision of five years’ worth of housing, based on the identified housing requirement for the area.
The Shropshire Council five year housing land supply statement for 2017 sets out the Council's assessment of the housing land supply in Shropshire over the five year period from 2017/18 to 2021/22.
The assessment demonstrates that Shropshire Council currently has 6.04 years’ supply of deliverable housing land.
