The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) requires all Local Authorities to ensure a five year supply of deliverable land for new homes against their housing requirement. The calculation of the supply is an important part of our regular monitoring and takes into account information on site viability and development activity.

The council’s land supply position is now 6.71 years as agreed in appeal decision APP/E2734/W/19/3236153 (Land at Harrogate Road Wetherby).

The housing land supply update April 2019 can be downloaded below and concludes that Harrogate Borough Council can currently demonstrate a supply of 6.89 years.
