Housing Land Supply Trajectory

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) sets out the requirement for local planning authorities to provide information on housing policy and performance, including the preparation of a housing land supply trajectory. The housing trajectory is required to demonstrate that the Council can deliver its development plan housing targets and associated infrastructure.

In this way it supports the 'plan, monitor and manage approach' to housing delivery by monitoring both past and anticipated completions across a period of time. It can help indicate at an early stage whether any steps need to be taken to ensure that planned housing requirements are met.

However, a housing trajectory is not intended to produce 'perfect forecasts' of the future, nor necessarily absolute answers regarding the past and present.

The Chiltern 2014 Housing Land Supply Trajectory was approved by the Chiltern District Council Cabinet on 26th August 2014.  The 2014 Trajectory covers the period 2006 to 2029.  It includes new housing delivered in Chiltern between April 2006 and March 2014.  Looking forward from 31st March 2014, it covers the 15-year period up to March 2029, three years beyond the period covered by the adopted Chiltern District Core Strategy. The headline tables and graphs in the trajectory will be included in the 2013/14 Authorities Monitoring Report (AMR) to be published later in 2014 or in the first quarter of 2015.

The 2014 Trajectory will provide key background evidence to the Submission Delivery Development Plan Document. It also informs the decision making process of the Council on planning applications for new housing and others with an interest in housing development in Chiltern District.
