Additional information had been received from Yaxham Parish Council (see supplementary agenda pages 375 -376).

 

The Senior Planning Policy officer presented the report and provided members with a detailed overview of the current situation in regard to the Council’s five year housing land supply.

 

It was a requirement of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) to prepare a five year housing land supply statement on an annual basis.

 

The five year housing land supply was a comparison of the anticipated supply of new dwellings, against the number of new dwellings that were required to be built in Breckland (known as the housing requirement).

 

The actual number of homes completed in Breckland in 2017-18 was 530 dwellings.

 

Councillor Clarke asked a question in relation to the paragraph at the top of page 376 where it mentioned the dates that the five year Housing Land Supply Statement should be produced..  Members were informed that normally the Statement would be issued on the 31st March each year.

 

Councillor Duigan wanted to know the meaning of ‘not-superceded’ allocations.  Members were informed that the Planning Inspector had recommended the terminology used as opposed to saved allocations. The meaning of it was that any allocation that sat within the current development plan i.e. Site Specifics DPD or Thetford Area Action DPD are being saved in the system and were being counted into this 5 year land supply.

 

RESOLVED that the contents of the report be noted and the findings within the attached appendix (as at 31 March 2018) be given material weight in decision making.
