Housing Land Supply & Development
Future Housing supply and recent development activity.
Counts of completed and permitted dwellings for towns and villages from 1st April 2006 to 31st March 2020. The latest survey is as at 31st March 2020. The next survey (March 2021) will be available in September 2021.
Five Year Housing Supply
Local Planning Authorities are expected to identify and maintain a five year supply of housing sites in the district.
The latest position statement and supporting evidence is based on completions and consents as at 31st March 2020 and site progress updates at January 2021.
These show the Council cannot demonstrate a five year housing land supply against government housing targets, which came into effect in December 2019.
Progress reports on major housing sites:
Supply of Gypsy and Traveller Sites
The Council monitor permissions granted against the current estimates of need.
Gypsy and Traveller Sites -(December 2019).
Employment Land and Premises Monitor (ELP)
This report tracks development progress on allocated/emerging employment sites. It also provides a 'snapshot' of recent completions, permissions and allocations and larger retail consents. The monitor reflects progress and proposals as at January 2020.
Community Facilities in Primary and Secondary villages
Core Policy 1 of the Local Plan Part 1 identifies a hierarchy of settlements in Mendip including the five main towns and a group of 16 Primary and 13 Secondary Villages. The definition of Primary and Secondary Villages is linked to a number of key services and facilities. A change in key facilities may be taken into account as a 'material consideration' when determining individual planning applications or site allocations in the Local Plan Part II.
