Housing land supply, annual monitoring report, shopping occupancy and Infrastructure Funding Statement

Five-year housing land supply

We are required to identify and update annually a supply of specific and deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years’ worth of housing against their housing requirement (National Planning Policy Framework paragraph 47).

We publish our five year housing land supply position regularly. The most recent reports are available to view below:

Shopping Occupancy Survey

This document sets out our development of a policy approach to maintaining and enhancing the functions of town, local, district and neighbourhood centres in the Borough.

The survey work was undertaken in January 2020 by visiting all of the shopping centres and parades in the Borough.

Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS)

We are required to produce an Infrastructure Funding Statement (IFS) following changes which were introduced through the Community Infrastructure Regulations in 2019. The IFS provides a summary of the developer contributions which are collected and spent by the Council.
