Chichester Local Plan Area - Five Year Housing Land Supply 2021-2026

The attached report presents the council's assessment of five year housing land supply in the Chichester Local Plan area over the period 2021-2026. From 15 July 2020 the council's housing supply has been measured against a figure based on the Government's standard methodology for assessing housing need. It results in an assessment of Local Housing Need of 634 dwellings homes per year in the Chichester Local Plan area.

The council commissioned Lambert Smith Hampton to prepare research and undertake a "critical friend" review of the 2021 position statement, a copy of which is attached.

The  Housing Delivery Test 2020  is an annual measurement of housing delivery in the plan-making authority's area. The Housing Delivery Test demonstrates that the council has successfully been delivering housing for the period 2017-2020 when measured against the housing requirement for that same period.
