Five year housing land supply - Christchurch and East Dorset 2012 - 2017
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) 2012 requires all planning authorities to identify and update annually a supply of specific deliverable sites sufficient to provide five years worth of housing against their housing requirements with an additional 5% buffer to be moved forward from later in the plan period.
Housing land potential has been assessed for the plan area as a whole in line with the housing projection set out in Policy KS3 of the Christchurch and East Dorset Core Strategy Pre Submission 2012.
The 2012 Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessments (SHLAA) for Christchurch and East Dorset have identified a 5 year supply of 2,985 units (887 units in Christchurch and 2,098 units in East Dorset). This meets the requirement of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) as it provides for the 5 year requirement of 3,005 which incorporates a 5% buffer.
The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment - Christchurch and the Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment - East Dorset reports explain how the 5 year requirement is calculated and compared against identified land supply.
