MiDavies – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Communities and Local Government

The below Parliamentary question was asked by MiDavies on 2016-09-02.

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how many councils do not currently have a five-year land supply.

Gavin Barwell

We do not hold information centrally on how many local planning authorities do not have a five-year land supply for housing. A local planning authority’s five-year land supply position changes frequently and is subject to market conditions. The National Planning Policy Framework requires local planning authorities to keep their land supply under regular review.
