Housing delivery test

Paragraph 75 of the National Planning Policy Framework states that:

“Where the Housing Delivery Test indicates that delivery has fallen below 95% of the local planning authority’s housing requirement over the previous three years, the authority should prepare an action plan in line with national planning guidance, to assess the causes of under-delivery and identify actions to increase delivery in future years."

During the monitoring period 2018-2021 the Borough of Broxbourne delivered 72% of its housing requirement.

Consequently, the Council has prepared a Housing Delivery Test Action Plan. You can view and download the PDF document:
