Housing Trajectory and Five-Year Land Supply
We are required to maintain a five-year advance supply of land for house building, updated annually.
The National Planning Policy Framework requires all local planning authorities to identify a supply of specific deliverable sites to provide five years' new housing supply against their requirements, as calculated under national policies. A housing trajectory is used by councils to calculate their 5-year housing land supply (5 YLS) and demonstrate whether anticipated housing delivery will meet or exceed those housing requirements.
